When Iceland burned down on March 28, a tentative hope was to have it back up and running by its 70th anniversary. It looks like that could be possible, thanks to the community’s donations of money and time. “I’m humbled. People just appeared,” said Terrie Kerth, granddaughter of Iceland founder William Kerth, of the help. According to www.skatesacramento.com, volunteers moved 1,000 cubic yards of debris with wheelbarrows and shovels. Between 600 and 700 volunteers have participated in the cleanup, Kerth added. She also said that if the weather stays below 70 degrees during the day, the rink could easily be open this Thursday. The celebration will also feature food vendors, games and radio station KDND 107.9 The End. Admission will be free, but donations are encouraged. Fox40’s Paul Robbins will emcee the event. Iceland’s 70th Anniversary Benefit Celebration happens Thursday, November 4, from 6-9 p.m. 1430 Del Paso Boulevard, (916)-992-4836, www.skatesacramento.com.
