On an auspicious day in 1954, a group of community members brought together vision and generosity to create Wissahickon Skating Club. Since that time, generations of skaters and their families have enjoyed the fruits of that vision and generosity. Today I write to you about what I hope will be looked upon by future generations of Wissahickon Skating Club families as the beginning of another “auspicious day.”
In past emails I have referenced our “great old barn.” It is part of what makes us unique, and each time we visit it instills a warm sense of nostalgia. It is home. However, the age of our beautiful facility creates a very real risk that on any given day, we could experience a major coolant leak under the ice, a compressor failure, or any of a hundred other breakdowns that could shutter our old barn for an indeterminate period. In short, it is time to recreate the vision and generosity of our founding members and undertake a major renewal to preserve “Wiss” for ourselves and future generations.
With that, I share with you the vision for a renewed Wissahickon Stating Club, and ask you to please read this lengthy message, with key information provided below in Q&A format.
Kevin Hamel, President, Wissahickon Skating Club
