MEDINA –  The Orleans United Drug Free Communities Coalition held a free family roller skating event on Thursday afternoon at the Orleans County YMCA in Medina.

There were over 250 youth and parents who attended what has become an annual event just after Christmas.

This year a Hawaiian Luau theme was included in the event with prizes awarded to youth who dressed up Hawaiian. Youth could also have some fun at the free photo booth with Hawaiian props included.

Volunteers from Medina Area Association of Churches attended and helped collect a total of 225 non-perishable food items from attendees to donate to the two food pantries in Medina.

New this year, participants also had the opportunity to watch a showing of the Disney movie “Moana” during the event sponsored by Tobacco Free GLOW.

The Orleans United Drug Free Communities Coalition said the event would not be been possible without the support of Medina Area Association of Churches, Orleans YMCA and Tobacco Free GLOW.
