Shrewsbury – Two Shrewsbury youth, 16-year-old Alycia Bouffard, a junior at Shrewsbury High and 12?year-old Kristen Sjogren, a seventh-grader at Oak Middle School, were recently a part of the Ice Chips 2012 100 Years of Excellence, a skating show celebrating the dreams and accomplishments of the past, present and future of figure skating.

This year's 100th anniversary production celebrated the legacy of the world-renowned figure skating venue, the Skating Club of Boston, through an innovative, entertaining and visually illuminating production. With a dramatic display of colors, lights and dazzling skating performances, Bouffard and Sjogren were a part of a cast that took the audience on a journey through some of the most memorable highlights of the past century.

The Ice Chips show starred 2010 Olympic Champion Eric Lysacek and Mirai Nagasu, 2010 Olympian and three-time U.S. Ladies Medalist, as well as top skaters from the Boston area. Ice Chips is the Skating Club of Boston's annual skating festival and the longest-running amateur ice show in the world.? It has brought Boston audiences some of the biggest names in figure skating from around the world, while introducing them to current and future champions. The 2012 production of Ice Chips benefitted the Division of Sports Medicine at Children's Hospital and the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.
