Beaver Dam Family Center Wins New Lighting Contest

(Beaver Dam) A local ice skating rink has won a contest that has a grand prize of a $50-thousand dollar LED lighting system. The Beaver Dam Family Center tallied the most votes in the final round of the American Hockey League’s Light Like The Pros promotion. The same professional LED sports lighting system used in the Miami Dolphins Hard Rock Stadium and the Pittsburgh Pirates PNC Park will be installed at the Family Center. The winning rink was selected based 75-percent on the vote totals and 25-percent on an essay. The Family Center opened in 1984 and is home to the Beaver Dam Hockey League and the Swan City Ice Skaters. The original lighting was replaced ten years ago with a low-interest loan from Alliant Energy that officials say paid for itself with energy savings.
