The first of almost a dozen upcoming skateboarding events took place last week. Kids enjoyed Chapin Memorial Library's Wednesday night event, 'Gnarly at the Library,' at Chapin Park after author, Ray Gurz, shared his book, Jacob and Ridley Head to the Park. If you have a child who is 5-12 years old who likes to skate, the City's Parks, Recreation and Sports Tourism Department begins its Monday night skateboarding lessons at Matt Hughes Park Monday, October 25. The program is called 'Skate Safe.' Skate Safe will teach you how to ride. A helmet is required. Classes begin Monday, October 25 and continue every Monday through December 20. Classes are 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Matt Hughes Skate Park, 33rd Avenue North.
City residents: $15 for eight classes
Non-city residents: $25 for eight classes
