Port Credit Skating Club
The Port Credit Arena opened in 1959. Ice was rented privately each Saturday and lessons were taught by Ellen Burka. Two years later, Rosemary Forbes and Rosina Peckham formed a skating club. A charter was drawn up in accordance with the Canadian Figure Skating Association guidelines. In 1961 the Port Credit Figure Skating Club became a reality. Today, over four hundred girls and boys enjoy skating at the Port Credit Figure Skating Club. The Club continues to be a non-profit organization sanctioned by Skate Canada and operated solely by parent volunteers.
