Rotary member Jack Van Delden marked the lap cards of a couple of hockey players who skated in the Rotary Skateathon at the multiplex Sunday afternoon. Because of the number of people who participate, the skateathon is held during public skating over three different dates.

The skateathon is a fundraising initiative of the Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake where 75 per cent of the proceeds go to the participating teams and organizations and the remainder is used by Rotary towards its initiatives in the community and internationally.

The skateathon involved 198 youngsters this year from hockey teams as well as 4-H and Interact clubs.
