WINCHESTER — Rollerskating Fridays resumed June 9 at the Winchester Arena. And the retro fun, free activity — gliding along to DJ music while wearing old-fashioned four-wheeled skates — runs every Friday night, 7 to 9 p.m., through Aug. 4.

The only difference from the original roller-disco days of yore is the helmeted noggins of today’s skaters.

Dairyfest organizers, who operate the regular roller-skate night, offer free pairs of skates for all ages to use, even the strap-on type for little ones. And they say they’re always willing to accept donations of old roller skates to boost the available inventory for patrons.

Our country has just turned 150, but did you know Canada wasn’t even half that age when a place called “Terrace Green” first began welcoming guests one mile west of Winchester? See the intriguing story of how today’s Terrace Green B&B discovered its history of hospitality.
