Nancy from SLAG wrote in with an interesting event note. Who doesn’t like skating to the French National Anthem? Most interesting of all is the fact that kids can earn community service hours by participating. Don’t be surprised if there are more rollerbladers than usual. I’m just warning you now. The French love the blades.
Check it out:
Wanted to let you know that there is a skate event taking place July 11th, part of the French Cultural fest: Bastille Day (1:30 -4:30pm) so if you want to come down and just be part of the fun, or know of any students looking for community service, they can come volunteer by skating in the demo, helping to instruct and to run fun games for younger kids.
James Starlin will be emceeing the day, and rounding up skaters to do demos.
I will be in charge of the clinic.
Also this also extends to the 12 and Under skates from 10am-12pm on Saturdays at SeaSk8.
It’s a way of building continued support for skateparks in Seattle.
Thanks for all the work you do, and enjoy summer!
