The 50th Anniversary of Evarts Rink


With a vision for an indoor rink for home ice and the community, former Harvey parent and trustee Maxwell Evarts worked jointly with Bedford Bears directors and others to construct what would become the Maxwell Evarts Memorial Rink. Opening in 1969, the rink has been home to hockey, figure skating athletes, and The Harvey School community for 50 years.

"There was no rink anywhere short of White Plains and a lot of folks wanted to skate and have their kids learn figure skating and hockey."

-Frank Weil '44
