Like many other buildings in Wadena, the Wadena Community Center was destroyed in the 2010 tornado. The Wadena Hockey Association, who used the center for hockey practices and games, scrambled to find a place for kids to skate. The first season after the tornado, skaters had the unique experience of playing outdoors. The hard work of many volunteers made this possible. Through several long months of effort, the Wadena Hockey Association was able to begin work on rebuilding an arena in Wadena. After several delays, the rink had a roof over its head and a shell of a bu
