Good night, Highland

Today was a day full of celebration. All the open skates were full, the last show was a success, the shop was busy, lots of people came all day. We have many more photos to share from the last few days, but I thought it important to say, “Good night, Highland.”

#Highland Ice Arena held its last skate on Saturday, October 15, 2022 with a celebration. Teams performed, people skated - some who hadn't skated for years.

They are getting well-deserved attention from the media. Stories have been published in print and online media and told on radio and TV.

The story that we published on September 5, 2022 End of an Era: Highland Ice Arena closes October 15, 2022 by Jamie Holter, was our top story for three weeks.

Over 100,000 people saw the story and thousands commented, shared, clicked - easily our top story of all time.

The comments were basically all the same, variations of "oh no, a piece of my childhood gone." Then they would forward the story to the people they skated with.

Terry Green and her brother Rick Stephens are the co-owners. 

They will continue their business sharpening skates. Rick Stephens will still be selling skates by appointment on Wednesdays and Saturdays for the next few weeks at the Highland location.

The building will be demolished and two apartment buildings built in its place.

Dan Hall, like many, took a recent trip to look at the place he spent so many hours while his daughter played hockey. He shared the photos he took.

Thanks, Rick. I've added that information to the story.
