my rink...your rink. OUR rink.
I've been approached by many, many people about the apparent fate of Berkeley Iceland. Just last Sunday, 1/28/07 a parent innocently asked, "whose going to save the rink?" Great question. The answer is...YOU!
Actually, you and I are going to save it together. This significant yet worthwhile undertaking is community-driven and we all have to accept that reality. The several dozen people who have attended each of the early Save Berkeley Iceland meetings are the early catalysts in this process. The is and must continue to be a viral effort as well; spreading and growing with each conversation, email, phone call and petition.
My responsibility, to this point is to participate as you do. I'm getting the word out and telling people that they have a role to play. I am also a liason to the various agencies and individuals in local government. I am also one of those seeking the funds to purchase and renovate facility. If you have any great or not-so-great suggestions, please provide them in the comments below. Thank you and I'll see you at
the our rink.
