Skating on the slough
News, Posted on January 5, 2021

Braden Magnowski (pictured), Mervin Magnowski and Denis Dohie have been busy clearing off the slough located on the north side outskirts of Russell. After seeking permission from Ron & Darlene Witty, who own the land, the crew brought an old fashion ice cleaner to clear off the ice. While the ice is open to anyone who would like to skate on it, they do want you to remember to be socially distant and follow any public health orders that are currently in place. They also noted it is a skate at your own risk and that the land owners are not liable or responsible should something happen.
