Celebrating the wonders of winter

Carnival comes back to Newburyport's Bartlet Mall

(Continued)

“The Frog Pond Skating Club is absolutely key to making this happen,” Reid said. “We need the ice to be in good shape for this event, and they are the ones who make it happen.”

Members of the club were out on the pond during last Thursday’s storm, working in two-hour shifts to plow the snow.

“They are the ones who have fallen through the ice in the past at midnight, trying to keep the ice clear,” Reid said. “And they are out there in the freezing cold hosing down the ice with fire hoses. We owe them a great deal of gratitude.”
