Lakeland Figure skating club celebrating 25th anniversary with annual ice show
MINOCQUA - Most people go big for a 25th anniversary. The Lakeland Figure Skating Club is celebrating its anniversary through it's annual ice show.

The club has roughly 30 members. Volunteer Karla Wotruba says the skaters and coaches have been working to master all the routines.


She says the show will include a variety of skill level.

"Four and five-year olds that are just learning how up to some skaters that have accomplished a lot," said Wotruba. "So you'll see everything from learn to skate to some pretty exciting jumps and spins." 

Wotruba hopes a lot of people attend and support the volunteer-run club.

The ice show will run three times at the Lakeland Hawks Ice Arena in Minocqua. Twice on March 2, and once on March 3. Visit the Lakeland Figure Skating Club Facebook Page or the Lakeland Hawks Ice Area website for more information.
