Fundraiser scheduled for June 9
Organizers of the Ramps at Memorial Park (RAMP) will hold a fundraiser from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 9, at the Hudson Valley Brewery in Beacon. Skateboard ramps will be open from noon to 5 p.m.
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.Did you find this article useful or informative?
