Though the annual skating carnival couldn’t happen this year, members of the Hope Skating Club were able to get some time in the spotlight in a different way.

Star 7 skater Desiree Zerr and a few members of the Star 1 group joined coach Sarah Steberl on the ice to shoot some video for the local Facebook group.

“With sad hearts, because of COVID, we were not able to do a skating carnival this year,” Steberl posted on the Hope B.C. Bulletin Board. “The skaters and I thought it would be a good idea to do a little video for everyone to see their progress. They all did a great job this year!”
