What's New

The A.J. LaRue Arena is open and looking good!

The Arena in Haliburton is open once again after a winter long major renovation which included a complete rebuild of the interior of the main floor of the arena including a new ice surface, a reconfiguration of the stands and players boxes, the addition of two new dressing rooms below the stands and the merging of two main floor dressing rooms to create one larger accessible dressing room and washroom.  The ice is wider, the stands are accessible by incline lift and the new rubber floor throughout will make it easier for everyone.  March Break is seeing lots of activity for the free public skating and we’re hearing lots of great comments.  Come see for yourself and don’t forget your skates....

The Polar Bear Plunge into Head Lake, sponsored by the Lions Club in support of Sick Kids Vision Project, was a huge success with over $7,000 raised locally towards this cause with almost 30 people jumping into the frigid waters that had been opened up by the Dysart Fire Department earlier in the day.  Tons of photos and video footage can be found on our Facebook page by clicking the link at the top of the page....
