JP Resident’s New Company, Joy Skate Productions, Hosting Benefit for Veterans on Boston Common

Jamaica Plain resident Elin Schran skated with Dorothy Hamill, performed in the Ice Capades and recently launched Joy Skate Productions, which is hosting a benefit for the veteran and military communities on February 4 on the Boston Common. Schran answered questions about the new company, the benefit event and more. Q: When and why did you create Joy Skate Productions? Schran: I started Joy Skate Productions in June of 2018 to make the joy of skating accessible to more people. I love skating -- the sense of freedom you have when you’re gliding on the ice, and the sense of community that comes when you enjoy the ice with others.
