Fundraiser scheduled for June 9

RAMP is a project launched last year by two Beacon residents to convert, in partnership with the city’s Recreation Department, two little-used tennis courts in Memorial Park into a skateboard park that is scheduled to open June 21. Helmets will be required. The park will have two quarter-pipes and several other box ramps purchased with a $1,000 grant from Wee Play.
