It is there folks – keep trying !!!!!!
Oliver friends! Can you contribute two minutes of help that could make a humungous difference for our little town?
The Oliver & District Arena is on its last legs. The brine lines under the floor that keep our ice frozen have been breaking a few at a time for the past five years. If the lines fail, the arena will need to be shuttered – possibly forever – since the cost of immediate repairs may be too big a burden for our little town to carry.
HOPEFULLY PART OF THE SOLUTION:
Each year, the Kraft Hockeyville contest awards $250,000 of arena upgrades to one lucky Canadian town. We want Oliver to be the Kraft Hockeyville winner this year!
Between now and Feb 14th, we need Oliver to rally around nominating the Oliver & District Arena. It’s so simple and quick! It’s simple and quick: visit

YOUR HELP MATTERS:
Our arena is more than a building: it’s where community is built. For 51 years, thousands of kids have strapped on skates, stepped onto our ice, and learned to love the game because of the Oliver & District Arena. If we all invest just a couple minutes to rally around Oliver’s Kraft Hockeyville application, we have the chance of earning dollars towards keeping our well-loved arena open. Every dollar raised towards the necessary repairs brings the dream of having the Oliver & District Arena stay open for decades to come closer to reality.
