Closed for the Season! The Stow Community Park Skating Rink shut down operations this week. With the daytime temps in the 40s and the nights not getting cold enough, the Rec Commission decided it was time. Spring can’t be too far away.Ellen Oliver ohn and Mary Ketola recently vacationed on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The timing of their vacation was perfect because they missed the “blizzard of 2013”. The weather was perfectly beautiful the whole time: warm and sunny! Here they are at the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, Bahamas. And the Stow Independent went with them. These 4th grade girls enjoyed a February Staycation, ending the week at Roller Kingdom in Hudson.
