WELCOME to SAFE SKATE 2021!
We're doing everything we can to keep everyone safe who is a part of this outdoor recreation activity -- including you, our volunteers -- and you also play an important role in helping us keep everyone safe! All participants, volunteers, employees, spectators, visitors, and uninvited guests must wear a face covering at all times while on the premises. If you are feeling sick at all, or showing any signs of symptoms, please stay home -- DO NOT come to the ice rink! Also, if you travel outside of Clallam County, or are planning to travel, DO NOT sign up for a volunteer slot in the days that would follow your return.
First, THANK YOU for volunteering to help out at the Winter Ice Village!

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU SHOW UP FOR THE SHIFT YOU COMMIT TO, and if you can't make it please delete your signup at least 48 hours prior so that someone else can take your place. Every one of these positions is critical to making the Winter Ice Village function and we can't operate without them.
