Roy and April Schramm would put on an annual ice show in North Hollywood to benefit handicapped people and the Boys and Girls Club. Roy was born May 14, 1924 in Beach, North Dakota. He and his twin brother Ray learned to ice skate and at the age of 18 joined the Ice Follies. They were known for skating with their wrists and ankles handcuffed to each other. Schramm's was located on Vineland just north of Sherman Way.
Photograph caption dated March 6, 1950 reads "Junior 880 - April and Roy Schramm reward Bob Claypool, Norm Thurson, Ronald Eaton." The Schramms are shown giving trophies to the three young men wearing ice skates. The couple ran an ice skating rink, Schramm's, in North Hollywood.
