Neighborhood Chair Appreciation Dinner

To show appreciation for the chairs and vice chairs of Provo's Neighborhood Program, the City Council held a dinner for these key volunteers and their families last night. The Peaks Ice Arena hosted the event and provided ice skating for all involved. Peaks recently underwent renovations and is now open with a full schedule of classes, events, and open skate times.
