A group of youngsters who are working hard to raise funds to restore an outdoor skating rink at Rimbey elementary school are about to receive another financial boost.

On Sat. March 2, Nordstrom Dental Midget Renegades will take on the coaches of Rimbey Minor Hockey in the Battle of the Biscuit hockey game. Game time is 7 p.m. at the Vern Poffenroth Arena.

All proceeds from this event will go to the outdoor rink project.

Every year Rimbey Minor Hockey, with the sponsorship of local businesses, host tournaments that bring people to the town from all over Alberta.

In the last seven years, Rimbey Minor Hockey has hosted three provincial tournaments and a portion of these funds go back to the community.

Last year, Stacey Johnson and her host committee hosted the 2018 Midget C Provincial Tournament. This was the second provincials that Johnson has chaired and the community minded volunteer deserves many accolades for a job well done.

Funds from the provincials have gone towards Kids In Sports, ($1,500), upgrading the sound system at the arena, purchasing new faucets in the arena dressing rooms and most recently, the 2018 midget Provincial Committee donated $2,000 to the Rimbey Elementary School WE Group consisting of Tavish Beagle, Reed Tourssaint and Dutch Felt to help refinish and pave the outdoor rink on the school grounds.
