Why are we building a skatepark?
As local skateboarders, we noticed that there aren’t any safe and legal places to skate. The only true legal place to skate is in the middle of the road! We want Lunenburg’s youth to have a safe place to skate and to cater to all ages and ability levels.
We are all 8th grade students at the Lunenburg Middle School. Through a common interest in skate boarding and time afforded to us by the school sponsored Genius Hour program – we came together and conceived this plan. Genius Hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school.
We are looking for donations and sorts of financial assistance, although simply spreading the word and telling a friend, coworker or even a stranger can (and has proven to) be just as helpful. Without your support – this project will not succeed. Please donate what you can – we thank you in advance!
