RIVERTON MEMORIAL ARENA

November 16, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Check it out: Riverton's barn built in 1946. After the war, the federal government was handing out money to towns to build new legions. Riverton already had a legion, so they used their share of the money to buy materials for an indoor arena...the work was done by volunteers from the town. High school students were let out of school in the afternoons to work on the building. I spoke with a man who's father was one of those students...it was the first indoor rink for miles around, everybody thought it was quite a luxury to play inside....for the record though, it's just as cold inside as it is out lol.
