On Saturday, about 235 parents and kids took to the ice at Horgan Arena for two free hours of community skate time sponsored by the Auburn-Webster Elks Lodge #2118. The skaters came not only from Auburn but also from area towns like Oxford, Leicester, and Charlton.

Ms. Angel King, the Exalted Ruler elect of the Lodge, said the attendance was very good, and they were pleased to host the event. The smiles on all the faces confirmed how the skaters felt.

From very young children to grandparents, all were enjoying the day.
