Letter to the Editor:

Kudos to Eagle River, the surrounding communities and supporters, near and far, for your help with voting and spreading the word for the Kraft Hockeyville contest.

A special hats off to Ferrell Gas, Trig’s, Pick ‘n Save, Hahn Printing, Laser Pros, Kwik Trip, Veterans of Foreign Wars and especially the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce for their additional help.

While the “Dome” did not win the grand prize, we did take first runner up which consists of $30,000 in rink upgrades and an additional $10,000 in youth equipment.

More importantly, with all of your help, the Dome has gained a following that far exceeds Eagle River and our local community. It has spread across the country, giving national exposure to the immediate, as well as short- and long-term needs.

Our goal is to continue to build on this momentum so that future generations can continue to enjoy skating at the Dome for another 100 years.

Congratulations to Calumet, Mich., for winning Kraft Hockeyville and thank you to Kraft for allowing this opportunity for Eagle River and the Dome to be one of four finalists.

Donations to our Save the Dome campaign can be mailed to: Nicolet Bank, P.O. Box 1599, Eagle River, WI 54521.
