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.
