Happy New Year! 

On Dec. 1 we kicked off our month-long year-end giving campaign with a goal of raising $50,000 for the 'Raise the Ice Barn' campaign. Today I'm thrilled to announce that we not only met, but surpassed that goal... raising a grand total of $61,605.22 in cash and pledges in just 31 days. It's incredibly humbling! 

And because we know that giving isn't limited to just one day or one month, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who supported the Gallatin Ice Foundation and helped make 2016 so memorable! Thank you!

Construction update: The cold and windy weather over the past two weeks has created several obstacles for our construction team, which has challenged our timeline. As of this morning, the plan is to start cleaning the rink slab today and begin building ice on Friday. We are optimistic that our Grand Opening schedule can remain as is, but will be updating everyone accordingly. Please follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information! 

Finally, I wanted to introduce our new Event and Office Manager, Anna Greenberg. Anna is a MN native, hockey enthusiast and passionate member of our community. Her first official day will be Jan. 16. Learn more about her below.

Thank you in advance for your patience and support. We can't wait to welcome everyone to Ressler Motors Ice Rink at the Ice Barn very soon! If you have any questions, please let me know.

Cheers, 

Chelsea Williams
