Frank Rukavina Arena

If you were going to name something after someone named Rukavina, I’d have to say that an arena is about the best choice you could make. Apparently the “heart of the Silver Bay Parks & Recreation program is undoubtedly the Frank Rukavina Arena.” Silver Bay, Minnesota — “The Best Kept Secret on Lake Superior’s North Shore” — started off life as a taconite refining centre. Frank Rukavina was Assistant School Superitendent in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and was instrumental in getting arenas built in Silver Bay and Two Harbors. The Frank Rukavina Arena was named after him in 1977.
