Because the Green Bay Packers played against the Chicago Bears last Thursday night, the date of their Hometown Huddle activities in Algoma were postponed, in order to give the players more time off. The one week delay hasn’t done anything to change the plans for Peterson Park though. Four Packer players, some Packer employees, volunteers from the United Way of Door & Brown Counties, and representatives of the City of Algoma will have a work day preparing Peterson Park’s ice skating rink for this winter. Sara Robertson, Algoma Parks & Recreation Director, explains what the checklist for the day entails.
There is no need for volunteers, but the public is invited to observe the process from afar. Robertson adds that when it is cold enough for the rink to ice over, there is hope that the Packers will return for the grand opening activities.
