Northern Lights Arena is a real gem in our community and are all very lucky to have this beautiful facility available to us. We would also like to let you know that every person working at NLA that we have had contact with has been very helpful and friendly. They work hard to keep things working, clean and always greet us with a big smile, a nod or a wave. You have some very special people working at NLA!Scott & Mary Ouellette
