The St. Malo Arena received a $10,000 donation from The Village Connection Thrift Store in St. Pierre to help purchase a new Zamboni.

Jacques Laroche is the President of the St. Malo Arena Board. He says this generous donation from The Village Connection means a lot to the St. Malo Arena as they are a small community and a new Zamboni is very expensive.

2013 st malo arenaSt. Malo Arena"We were probably thinking anywhere around $25,000 or more. We weren’t exactly sure what our goals should be because we have never done a huge amount like this. We were hoping to get anything so this very generous donation that we got from the Village Connection was a huge shock to us. It was very much appreciated but we were floored by it."

Laroche says they started talking about this fundraising campaign over a year ago but only began asking the community for donations in the last few months. He notes their current Zamboni is in desperate need of replacement.

"We are constantly putting money into it and we have called a company out from Saskatchewan that deals with Zamboni themselves and they sell them and they fix them and from the research we have done they are the experts on these machines so they came out and they have checked our machine and they say it is beyond repair."

Laroche thanks The Village Connection for their amazing support.
