Candlelight Church Buys Skate Plaza

On Dec. 26, 1980, then Skate Plaza Roller Rink owner-operators Pat and Marvin Miller opened their brand new facility. Fast-forward nearly 33 years to Sept. 6. That's when the Miller family officially completed the sale of the rink property to its neighbor, Candlelight Christian Fellowship. "It wasn't an easy decision," Pat Miller said Wednesday. The Millers' son, Major, and his wife, Michelle, also became owner-operators. "It was hard and very sad," Pat Miller said. But, she said, the Miller family couldn't be more happy with the new owner and operator. "We felt really good that they were willing to continue it as a skating facility," she said/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.
