YMCA raising money for skate park

September 28, 2004

Thomasville - Tonight, skaters are invited to try out a demo skate park at the Butler Mason YMCA. Parents and patrons are invited to donate to the park fund.

Greer Cox says, "It gives them an opportunity to skate in a safe environment, where the structures are maintained on a day to day basis. And it keeps them in Thomasville, they don't have to go to a neighboring communities and parents don't have to take them out of town. They can stay right here and skate and have a great time."

The demonstration is going on from 4-7PM at the Butler Mason YMCA. It's free for skaters, but they must have a helmet to skate. If you are interested in donating, contact the YMCA. They hope to have the park up and running by next summer.
