Morristown Beard School is excited to announce that due to the kind generosity of an anonymous donor, the School has become minority owner of the Twin Oaks Ice Rink in Morristown.
Twin Oaks, one of the area’s finest hockey facilities, is located just one mile from campus. While day-to-day operations of Twin Oaks will remain unchanged, this extraordinary gift ensures that MBS will always have access to a premier ice rink. Tremendous philanthropic gifts like this help both maintain and grow the School's many offerings. Thanks to the vision, foresight, and selfless generosity of this donor, the School can ensure accessibility for current and future MBS students.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of this family,” said Head of School Liz Morrison. “Even though their children are grown and will not benefit from this remarkable gift, they have created a legacy of philanthropy at the School and continue to pave the way for future generations of Morristown Beard students. We are incredibly fortunate and are deeply grateful for their ongoing support.”
Twin Oaks Ice Rink opened in November 2000 and has established a unique identity among North Jersey ice rinks. Its central location, warm atmosphere, and competitive youth and adult leagues have made Twin Oaks a popular destination for thousands of hockey players each year. For the past 22 years, Twin Oaks has been the home of the highly-successful Morristown Beard School boys and girls varsity ice hockey teams as well as its Middle School ice hockey teams. The MBS girls ice hockey team, which is coached by former NHL defenseman Bruce Driver, recently captured back-to-back state championships. The MBS boys ice hockey team has won three consecutive Mennen Cup titles.
“The ice quality is first-class, the ambiance is excellent, and its easy accessibility makes Twin
Oaks an excellent place to play,” said Coach Driver.
In addition to housing an NHL-size rink, Twin Oaks Ice Rink features a café, a pro shop, and meeting room.
