Chatham-Kent’s own Shae-Lynn Bourne will be in Ridgetown Feb. 15 to perform at the Ridgetown Figure Skating Club’s annual ice carnival.
Deb Veccia, skating club co-president, said the skaters are excited to have an internationally accalimed skater such as Bourne on hand.
“Having Shae-Lynn attend the carnival is an honour to the commitment of the volunteers, children and parents and will inspire skaters in the community to shoot for the stars,” she said in a release. “Shae-Lynn has again agreed to perform in our community as she enjoyed the small town charm and fun-filled atmosphere of the carnival last year. The skating club and Chatham-Kent are so lucky to be able to host a skater of such international and Olympic calibre.”
The Carnival will be held at the East Kent Memorial Arena in Ridgetown. Tickets are available from Ridgetown Figure Skating Club members and at Mittons Jewelers in Ridgetown.
