2016 - Pat Duke Memorial Arena (Lumby, BC)
A town of just 2,000 people, Lumby residents live by the motto "eat, sleep, hockey, repeat." Found at the heart of this village is the Pat Duke Memorial Arena. It's the location for summer fundraisers and school events, the host of figure skating clubs and lessons, and a home for minor hockey and rec leagues and local spectators.
As quoted on the Regional District of North Okanagan's website, "In April of 2016, Lumby was awarded $100,000 through the Kraft Hockeyville contest to make upgrades to the Pat Duke Arena, focusing on the addition of a female change room. It took a real feat of community commitment to achieve the number of votes that was required to win, and the community spirit is still palpable in the community."
