The Four Seasons Board of Directors realized last year the lack of cellphone reception at the Carlton ice arena and event center was an issue.

The board submitted a donation request to the Cloquet Eagles Club, who responded by purchasing a cellular amplifier for the arena, according to board President Tory Cawcutt.

It wasn't the first time the club has come through with support for the Four Seasons. In the past, the Eagles Club donated hand and power tools. The group also paid for the installation of baby changing stations in the men's and women's restrooms, and in October, the Eagles Club stepped up again.

The arena scoreboard was original to the building, constructed in 1996, and in increasingly poor condition. New parts weren't readily available, and retrofitting the scoreboard was more costly than replacement.

Recognizing the need, the Eagles Club sponsored a new LED scoreboard that should serve the arena's needs for at least 15 years. The scoreboard was installed in October, just in time for the 2018-19 hockey season.

"The new scoreboard looks great and it's a big improvement for the sports complex," Cawcutt said. "We couldn't be happier with the contributions the Cloquet Eagles has made to the Four Seasons Sports Complex and we are thankful for their support."
