Everybody make sure to stop by Chick-Fil-A anytime on Friday, March 5th. Ask to have your receipt put into the Parkersburg Skate Plaza Foundation’s container and a portion of that day’s proceeds will go to the foundation.

It’s that time of year again to start holding our monthly meetings at the City Building downtown. Our first meeting of 2010 will be held Thursday, February 18th at 7:00pm in the small conference room. If you have any questions about how to find your way there just comment in the form below or email us at info@parkersburgskateplaza.org and we can help you out.

Co-founder of the skate plaza foundation, Roy Collins, would like to elect officers for this up coming year. We are also looking for more adult figures to get involved in this project. Both of these agendas are important to the image and stability of the foundation. People want to know they are supporting an organized and responsible group of people when they donate to the cause. So if you can make it, please do so. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
