I also worked there! And yes, we were family. We had so much fun just being there and working with each other. It was magical. I miss those time very much. I lived at 1501 47th ave. Al and I played for Lincoln High baseball and Al was the fastest and top player on the team. he was just a jr! Lee Byrd was a zambonie driver at the rink and we had so much fun skating behind it! These we special times. I used to charge every one an extra quarter for new skates even if they wernt so new and use the money to be weed and beer for use once we were off work! Man were those times special.
