New Score Clocks for the Recreation Centre

Local business Crossway Community Thrift has offered to pay the costs of replacing the aging score clock in the Alex Kaleta arena in return for the display of their organization’s logo on the score clocks in both the Alex Kaleta and the Thelma Crowe arenas.
