The program focus will be on balance and coordination, and the introduction to such skills as stopping, pushing, and gliding. “Giving back to the communities we serve is at the heart of all we do,” said Tracey Mucha, Community Programming Manager, Access Communications Co-operative. “A lot of smiles and laughter will be shared at the Access Communications Children’s Fund learn-to-skate and leisure Community Rink during the winter months.”
