December 1 marked the first day of meteorological winter and while the winter solstice is still a couple weeks out, people are already in the winter mood, looking for activities to enjoy in the cold weather.
The Big Y Surprise Squad set out to send families to Smead Arena in Springfield for a little winter time fun.
It's a fun indoor activity perfect for the holiday season and this week, our mission was to give working this time of year a little pick-me-up with the gift of ice skating.
We hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season.
If you would like to nominate someone for a visit from our Surprise Squad, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
