NEIGHBORHOOD volunteer organization started in 1969 to serve the Heritage Heights neighborhood and its surrounding community in Madison, WI.
WINTER Community Supported Ice Rink. A group of neighbors worked with Alderperson Lauren Cnare and the Madison Common Council to establish a community ice rink in our neighborhood. The rink is located in Heritage Heights Park – between Meadowlark and Valley Roads. It is part of the Adopt Ice Partnership with the City of Madison. The partnership combines City resources with neighborhood volunteers to establish and maintain an ice rink. The City will set up the initial rink and plow when it snows more than 2 inches. Our community is responsible for maintaining the ice – we essentially “Adopt the Ice” at Heritage Heights. What is exactly involved in adopting the ice? Our responsibilities include scraping, shoveling and spraying the ice on a regular basis for optimum conditions. We are looking for volunteers for 2015-2016.
Nightly maintenance will begin at 7 pm on Mon, Weds, Fri, Sat and Sun nights There will be a crew chief present at every shift to answer any questions and help out.
Wearing skates while scraping and shoveling really helps the process go faster.
A limited number of shovels and scrapers will be available, but it's helpful to bring one of your own.
If it snows 2 inches or less, the more people the better! Shoveling just an inch of snow off the ice is a lot of work.
If it snows 2 inches or more, the City will plow (ice rinks are the lowest priority) and we should stay off the ice.
Some of us Wisconsinites tend to get a little soft around the middle during the winter - taking care of the rink is a lot of exercise! It's also a nice way to meet other folks in the neighborhood. Contact Coordinators: Renee Abel-Collinge or Randall Sarangoulis If you are interested in signing up for some maintenance shifts, you can go to http://my.calendars.net/heritage_ice If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Renee_Abel_Collinge@yahoo.com or 220-2908.
