In the world of newly constructed community ice rink facilities, the St. Luke’s Sports & Event Center, will be a tough one to beat. Proctor Public Schools had been planning this facility for over 5 years to serve the small community with a population of just over 3,000. This isn’t your ordinary community ice rink facility. Nestled up in the breathtaking woodlands of northern Minnesota, and in nationally recognized and historic hockey hotbed that surrounds Duluth, Minnesota, this 1,200 seat facility was designed for large crowds and as a community gathering place. The exterior of the building ties in the history of mining in the area with a large railroad trestle that frames out the entrance.
