NAUGATUCK, CT-- 22 JANUARY 2009--012209BF01- Jordan Jensen,13, middle in black coat, along with her friends from left Stephanie Hensley,13; Kyle Bastos,13; and Ambur Dumais,14, all 8th grade students at Hillside Middle School in Naugatuck have fun at the skating rink at Joseph R. Healy Recreation Area on Meadow Street in Naugatuck Thursday afternoon. Not having skates didn't stop the kids from enjoying the rink which is 70-feet wide by 110-feet long. It was filled by the Naugatuck Fire Department with 4,000 gallons of water. The rink is three inches thick on the low end, near the drain, and five inches thick on the high end. The borough will host a fire and ice gathering, which is free and open to the public, at the rink from 5-8 p.m. on Sunday. Hot chocolate will be served and a disc jockey will provide music.
