Staff with the City of Dryden are advising the public of programming changes at two local rinks.

The City of Dryden has announced that Milestone Rink is now closed for the season, due to unsafe ice conditions.

City staff add that regular programming at the Dryden Memorial Arena will also be cancelled between March 15 - 22, due to the annual Northern Big Bands hockey tournament. 44 teams will be coming into the community to compete for the championship.
