What: The public is invited to celebrate the opening of the renovated Centennial Sports Arena and the new addition. A ribbon-cutting, public open house and free skate is scheduled in the morning; a ceremonial puck drop before the boys varsity game against Blaine marks the grand re-opening of the ice.
Why: The Arena renovation and addition was made possible by a voter-approved capital levy in 2018.

The Arena closed after the 2019 hockey season and re-opens as the hockey season gets underway.
