The Uxbridge Curling Club

The Uxbridge Curling Club

Seen above is the curling rink as it looks today.

 

In March 1960 Uxbridge curlers formed a committee to look into selecting a site and building a curling rink. 3 weeks later a site behind the old arena (now the site of the Seniors Centre) was selected. At the time the club had 129 curlers signed up for membership. In August the footings were poured and the new rink opened in November.

 

Below you can see the walls going up on the new rink and the finished building

Below we see the same veiw taken in 2022.   The commercial buildings and houses are still there but have all had some exterior changes during the past 65 years.
