The original arena, built in this spot in 1921-22, was dedicated to the memory of those who fought in the Great War. When this new arena was built in 2011, the town continued the theme of a Memorial Arena. This large stone sits outside the main entrance of the facility, as a reminder to all who enter, of the sacrifices made by those who came before.
