SKATE KENT STATE
Help keep the rec rink open. It's vital to the figure skating and youth/ high school programs.
Kent State University is seeking to re-purpose portions of the university ice arena into a marching band facility. This decision will remove the recreation rink in the facility which will vastly limit the amount of available ice times. The university is home to two men's hockey teams. In addition to the university teams, 7 local high schools, a large youth hockey organization and figure skating club use the facility as well. By removing the recreation rink, there simply will not be enough availability for the demand. Please help us urge Kent State to reconsider this decision which could have long lasting consequences for the entire local community. I also want to make it known that I am NOT in any way shape or form representing any club, team or organization. I am simply a mom, educator, and alumnus of the Kent State Univeristy who is simply advocating for the children in our communities.
