Welcome sign to greet hockey fans

A warm welcome from the Village of Chase will soon be greeting hockey players and fans alike.

A warm welcome from the Village of Chase will soon be greeting hockey players and fans alike.

Council recently approved a sign to be displayed in the Art Holding Memorial Arena to welcome out-of-towners to the arena.

While the arena currently has no such signage, council, who was presented with the idea earlier this summer, originally turned it down.

“[The councillors] were not against the idea of having a sign,” says Joni Heinrich, chief administrative officer.

They were against the annual fee that was proposed along with it,  she explains.

Councillors explained that since residents essentially paid for the building itself, they did not think they should be charged an annual fee to display a sign.

The idea was considered and brought back to council recently, this time accepted, with council approving a sign to be made at their cost but without the annual fee.

According to Heinrich, the sign will cost about $600 and a design is currently being created. It will include the village logo and the words ‘The Village of Chase welcomes you.’
