Carolyn Grimditch Memorial

We are saddened by the loss of the founder of the club, Carolyn Grimditch, who passed away on Thursday, May 7, 2020. She was 97 years old. The club was started by her and her husband in 1962 at the Winterhurst Ice Arena in Fort Lauderdale. The Skating Club of Florida has been active at many rinks in South Florida under her leadership, including the Glacier Ice Arena (now home to the GoldCoast FSC), The Palm Beach Auditorium, Planet Ice, the Florida Panthers IceDen (now home to the Panther FSC), the Palm Beach Skate Zone (now home to the Palm Beach FSC), and finally with the Palm Beach Ice Works. Carolyn was a long time judge and official, who was involved in many local and national skating activities. Her leadership will be sorely missed, but her legacy continues with many of the skating clubs and officials owing a significant debt to her efforts.
