Happy To Know ! Councilman Caraway On Job !
I was very worried that the South Oak Cliff skating rink was going to be closed. I know for a fact that it would be used if anyone knew it was open. The building sat there with nothing to bring attention to it,lights,sign,public service announcement or any thing else.If it were a trouble spot it would be all over the news. I was talking with Councilman Dwain Caraway about how awful it was to close the Rink.The kids need activities and there are none near that area, with so much multifamily about a block away the Rink should serve a large number of young people.
Good news is October 1, 2009 the skating rink is open and the Thursday night adult session was on tonight at 9:30 PM until 1:AM. Caraway was there with bells on, back in the day we filled the Skating rink ,off Ervay St, now that we are older we can go back to a sport we loved.It is such good exercise and fun. Come out and join me and other Seniors and Adults in a night of fun and help the City keep the Rink open.We need activities in our community, we have the Rink let's support it.Every Thursday night's 9:30 PM Adult Session. Skating Rink is located on Loop 12 ( Ledbetter) across from Wells Fargo bank, next to Pawn Shop ,building sets back from street but you can see it from street.Take your kids on week end let family enjoy safe clean fun.Thanks Councilman Dwain Caraway for having the energy to fight for the center to stay open, the easy way out is to close it.Fighting for it gives the community another chance to make it work.Please get some publicity so people will know it's open.
