St. Anthony Catholic Church in Frankfort has offered the community two recreational ice rinks for more than half a decade.
The first rink, which was put together in 2009 by the father-and-son team of Jim and Matt Domzal, was predominantly used for pick-up hockey games, so a second rink was installed in 2010 for smaller children and figure skaters.
