Greetings,

Insane! Who would have thought 2 years ago that we would have a public skatepark like Berry Hill? So many people put in an incredible amount of their personal time to make it happen. To name a few… Gavin. Reid. Ben. Jonathon (Ware-not pictured). These guys killed it! Friends for Skateparks was founded by these guys. They created this non-profit organization to raise money, awareness and to be a voice for our community to the City to make their dream of Berry Hill a reality. I personally can’t thank them enough for what they have done.

On November 13th, 2015 the board for Friends of Skateparks voted me in as the new president. I have had a skateboard under my feet since 1984. I’m incredibly excited about the potential for the future of our organization. I want to thank Gavin, the previous president, for his hard work, personal time and inspiration.

Lexington has long needed an organization like Friends for Skateparks. We have long needed a voice to the City. We have long needed a fundraising organization like Friends for Skateparks. Well, we have it. I want this organization to pick up where Gavin left off. I want this organization to continue to do whatever we can to provide for the best facilities in Kentucky that will increase the stoke for our passion. We will work to build new skateparks and to rehabilitate, expand and improve our existing parks.

Stay tuned to our website and Facebook for upcoming fundraising events. We will need volunteers. We will need your help. This organization is here to serve the community and we will need the community’s help.

Sincerely,

Roderick Saylor

President
