“Rocket Ice- A few weeks ago I came with a group of individuals with special needs as a volunteer and I was so impressed with your staff that I chose to come with my family today. I live in Lombard and your location is not the nearest ice arena near my home. I came for my 3 year old daughter’s first time ice skating, and I have to say that I am still impressed and contemplating signing her up for classes to learn to skate. The girl in the ice skate rental window should have special notation as she was the sweetest, and most warm person to me, and my family. Your referees (my apologies if this isn’t the correct term) were very kind the night of my volunteering and during my 3 year old’s meltdown about having to leave Elsa and Ana. I just wanted to pop in and say thank you! Thank you for making a great memory for me, and my family!”
