Birthday girl supports community skating

Seven-year-old raises $113 for Nanaimo Lions Club’s free public skates

A seven-year-old Nanaimo girl very much enjoys the free public skates sponsored by the Lions Club, and made it her birthday wish to help ensure they continue.

Scarlett Jamieson, for her most recent birthday, had a toonie birthday party at the skating rink which raised $113. Earlier this year she stopped by the Nanaimo Lions Club’s free skate at Frank Crane Arena to present the donation to Larrie Taylor, club president.

In a press release, Taylor called Jamieson a “special young lady” and thanked her and her friends for their generosity.

The Nanaimo Lions Club free skates at Frank Crane Arena are supported by numerous sponsors around the community.
