WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Cumberland Valley on Ice skating rink under construction outside Zullinger, Pa., hired its first general manager Monday, according to board president Carol Henicle.
Peter Downey, 53, of South Windsor, Conn., was selected from a pool of about 10 applicants, Henicle said.
"We were real impressed with his qualifications," she said. "Basically, he wanted one big challenge before he retired from the industry."
Downey's experience includes stints as an assistant hockey coach at Yale University, head hockey coach at Sacred Heart University in Bridgeport, Conn., director and general manager of several skating arenas in New England, and executive director of the nonprofit International Hockey Training Center in Connecticut, Henicle said.
