MEDINA – Through collaboration with Orleans United Drug Free Communities Coalition, the Orleans YMCA, and Medina Area Association of Churches, “Free Roller Skating” had a great turnout on Dec. 29. This event has been very successful for many years, and organizers hope for it to continue to grow.

Free Roller Skating is an event that takes place at the end of December, giving students on school break an opportunity to participate in a family friendly, fun event. This year on Dec. 29, more than 150 school-aged kids and parents laced up and showed off their skating skills. Two lucky winners received an i-pod shuffle.

Without the support from these organizations as well as the children and parents, this event would not have been nearly as successful. The Orleans United Drug Free Communities Coalition is very grateful for all of the assistance provided to give youth a healthy, fun and safe experience.
