On March 19, the 41 Division CPLC, along with officers and Auxiliary members, came together to hand out the 150 pairs of skates they collected over the past few weeks at Don Montgomery Arena. The rink was also open for community members with their newly received skates and officers to skate together. All 150 pairs of skates were sharpened for free by local rts and the event was DJ’d for free by Simon Tsotsos.
