Pipestone Community Rink Changes Name – The Pipestone Flyer



Pipestone community rink changes name




On Saturday, February 26, 2022, members of the Pipestone community gathered at the Pipestone Community Ice Rink for the postponed Family Day festivities. The community event, originally scheduled for Family Day weekend, was pushed back to the following weekend to withstand better weather.

At the event, members of the Pipestone Community Society announced the rink’s new name: Lorentz-Pockrant Community Rink.

The name was chosen to recognize the work that Dan Lorentz and his son-in-law Dave Pockrant have put into the community rink over the years.

Beginning in the 1960s, Lorentz had volunteered his time to maintain the ice at the Pipestone Rink. Pockrant followed his father-in-law’s lead and took over rink duties in the early 2000s.

Mavis Lorentz accepted a plaque and was present at the nomination presentation on behalf of her late husband Dan. After working diligently on the ice in the days leading up to the community event with other rink volunteers to ensure the ice was ready for Saturday, Pockrant was also on hand to accept recognition and see the new sign go up. on the ice rink.

Community members enjoyed the beautiful February evening with skating, hot dog making and fireworks.
