One final skate at the Bob and Si
On March 27, Si Miller Arena will be open from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. while the Bob Turner will be open from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for free skating.

Cornwall - Mar. 18, 2011 - With the new Benson Centre nearing completion, the time has come to say goodbye to the Si Miller and Bob Turner arenas.

In a last hurrah, the city's recreation division is inviting all residents to visit both the Si Miller Arena and Bob Turner Memorial Centre on March 27 for one last skate on the ice.

"We're inviting everyone from Royals fans to kid's hockey associations and to those who came to the arenas over the years just to enjoy the ice," said Mayor Bob Kilger in a media release. "The city is preparing for a new multi-sports facility but we want to honour the memory of the facilities that so many of our citizens have had the chance to enjoy over the years."

On March 27, the Si Miller Arena will be open from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., while the Bob Turner Memorial Centre will be open from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for free skating. Music will be playing, concessions will be open and the ice will be ready for skaters to enjoy and reminisce.

A closing ceremony will be held at the Si Miller Arena at 3 p.m. along with a similar ceremony at 7 p.m. at the Bob Turner Memorial Centre. Both ceremonies will be hosted by the mayor.

The legacy of the Si Miller Arena and Bob Turner Memorial Centres will live on at the Benson Centre. Memorabilia from the two arenas will be incorporated into the entrance of the new Benson Centre, officials said.
