Iceland Skates Through the Holiday
Since the Victorian days of Currier and Ives' drawings, ice skating socials have been synonymous with winter celebrations. In New Hyde Park, the timeless tradition is reborn every holiday season at Iceland Skating Rink, 3345 Hillside Avenue, New Hyde Park. And in keeping with the true spirit of the season, the Nassau County-landmark ice arena is not content to merely provide its patrons with fun and frivolity; the rink's management makes sure that it helps the community in its efforts to reach out with hope and generosity to support a host of worthy causes. Iceland will lead into the New Year as this year's final collection site for Island Harvest's "Turkey and Trimmings" 2006 campaign; the rink has extended its canned goods collections through Jan. 1; (www.islandharvest.org) Iceland will be open on New Year's Day. Patrons who donated to the food bins in the lobby will receive an Iceland VIP card, worth up to $10 off in future admissions. For more information on donating, the holiday skating schedule, or special events, visit www.icelandi.com
