Great news for roller skating enthusiasts: beginning tomorrow evening (Friday), the roller rink at the old armory will be open to the public! The Chippewa Valley Youth Club has announced that the rink will be open on Friday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Long-time residents of Montevideo no doubt have many fond memories of skating at the old armory. Whether you were just starting out or fancied yourself an expert, skating at the rink provided hours of fun for every one!
