Ridgetown Figure Skating Celebrates 60 Years

(RIDGETOWN, ON) – Local skaters in Ridgetown have been working hard on their skating skills all season, and practicing routines for the upcoming annual ice carnival.

Carnival Director, Cheryl Weaver, along with volunteers from the Ridgetown Figure Skating Club have been busy selecting music, costumes, and choreographing routines to take the audience on a walk through 60 Years of Skating Memories including replications of skating numbers from each of the respective eras of skating over the last 60 carnivals performed .

There will be lots of alumni in attendance and even a number performed by former alumni, which will be sure to inspire all who attend.

Ridgetown’s own Natalie Robinson and Chase Ireland-Heidt will be sharing their grace and ice dance chemistry and talented Ruby Diemers will be inspiring local skaters on Sunday, February 15 at the East Kent Memorial Arena in Ridgetown. Show time is 2:00 pm.

Deb Veccia, Ridgetown Figure Skating Club’s Carnival Co-Chair, indicated that, “As a small club, the Board of Director’s goal is to deliver a top-notch, fun-filled program to our local youth that will create memories of a lifetime. The annual carnival is our major event to highlight and celebrate the skills the children have learned.”

Tickets are available from any of the Ridgetown Figure Skating Club’s members and at Mittons Jewellers, in Ridgetown.
