From STAFF REPORTS
Roane Skating is the latest of local attractions to announce its closing.
The skating rink announced its last skate on Saturday, Sept. 27, ending the following morning.
“We thank you for your patronage and support over the years,” said a recording at the rink.
It was a tough decision for Virgil Thompson and his wife Jessica, who took over the rink from Virgil’s uncle, Bill Thompson, a few years before the former Rockwood city councilman died in 2013.
