Cultural Moment

The Palmerston Curling Club was founded in 1903 and games were played on a natural two ice sheet lean-to beside the arena. Eventually, the club moved to an indoor rink due largely to a growing popularity of the sport in the region. In 1978 it moved to it's current location in the Palmerston Community Centre, where people can now curl on four ice sheet surface.
