Proceeds from Seat Sale at the Si to help underprivileged children
People will have a chance to buy a piece of the storied Si Miller Arena and support an important cause at the same time. Single seats will be available for $50 and double seats for $100, with the proceeds going to a special Recreation Fund to assist underprivileged children in accessing municipal recreation programs.

Cornwall - Sep. 2, 2011 - People will have a chance to buy a piece of the storied Si Miller Arena and support an important cause at the same time.

The former arena on Water Street is slated to be demolished by Aim Waste Management Inc. in the coming weeks, and the City of Cornwall has made provisions to remove sections of the wooden bench seating from the facility prior to demolition.

Single seats will be available for $50 and double seats for $100, with the proceeds going to a special Recreation Fund to assist underprivileged children in accessing municipal recreation programs.

The sale will take place at the Bob Turner Memorial Centre (504 Fourth Street East) on Saturday, October 8, 2011, at 9 am sharp. Sales will be handled by Visa and cash only. There will be a limited number of seats available, and they will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The seats will be sold in two pieces - the seat portion and the back portion - and buyers will have to assemble the seats themselves.

“A number of citizens have expressed an interest in acquiring a section of the seats from the Si Miller Arena,” said Christine Lefebvre, Division Manager, Parks & Recreation. “We’re pleased that we will be able to satisfy those requests, and the funds from the sale will be put to good use.”

The demolition of the Si Miller Arena and the Glen Theatre Building to the north of the arena is scheduled to be completed by October 28, 2011.

The Si Miller Arena and Bob Turner Memorial Centre have been replaced by the Benson Centre, a 193,000 square foot multi-sport complex that houses three NHL-sized ice rinks, an indoor soccer field house, indoor tennis court, and community activity rooms.
