With the on-going uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic and health restrictions that limit public gatherings, the Town of Claresholm decided to remove the ice from Claresholm Arena for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season. The town public works department was busy last week removing the ice, including Arnold Vegter, at left, and Jace McLean, in the Bobcat. See related photo on page 16. Photo by Rob Vogt
