Proposed skate park previewed

TICONDEROGA A vendor for the proposed Ticonderoga Skate Park came to Ticonderoga recently. The turn out for the event was incredible, not only the youth who participated by all the passerbys, said parent Mary Beth Karkoski. The Connecting Youth and Communities Coalition and the town of Ticonderoga organized the demonstration for local youth to skate American Ramp Co.s skate park products. It was a great day for the kids, Connecting Youth and Communities Director Kristi Mars said. The American Ramp Co. really put on a good show of their products and there were many questions asked of the manufacturer about the materials it is constructed from, vandalism, noise pollution, etc. The final stage for the Ticonderoga Skate Park is to organize a structured fundraising committee. So far grants have been applied to for the skate park but more local fundraising is needed. For more information or to join the Skate Park Committee call Mars at 585-6366.
