About 10 people showed up in support of the skatepark. Although our funding request was not on the agenda, we were allowed to speak. Several of us spoke on behalf of the skatepark, and we were even acknowledged for our work and dedication thus far. It remains to be seen if we will receive any funding.
You can and still need to contact your county commissioners and vocalize your support! Highlight the items listed below in your letters!
– Ours is a one-time request; we will not come back and ask for

– Skateboarding is safe.
– Volunteers have done a tremendous amount of work to date.
