On April 1st, 2015, at the tail-end of the worst winter in 50 years, our community of Newport NS suffered a huge loss when the Newport & District Arena collapsed. The loss of this facility affects our children most of all. Please help us rebuild our rink.

On April 1st, 2015, at the tail-end of the worst Winter in Nova Scotia in 50 years, the Newport & District Arena completely collapsed due to a buildup of ice and snow on the roof. For 42 years this facility had served the local community and surrounding areas, providing youth and adults alike with a gathering place supporting all kinds of activities. As with many tragedies, it's the youth of our community who will suffer the most. From the West Hants Minor Hockey Association to the Riverview Figure-skating Club to the skating activities provided for several local Elementary schools and the neighboring West Hants Middle School, these children are all immediately affected by the loss of the arena. As it did in 1972 when the arena was first built, the community has rallied and pledged to rebuild. While well insured, the insurance money will not cover all of the replacement costs. This is where we are asking for your help. Please consider making a donation and participate in raising the funds we require to complete the rebuild of the arena. While any amount of donation will be greatly appreciated, we ask that donation or not, that you please share our campaign with your friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter, etc. We are hoping that the power of social media will allow us to reach beyond our small community to many more who may emphathise with our cause.
