The effort to build a skate park for the children of Orange City is one step closer to becoming a reality. We have pledged one of our CDs full value to help the park become a reality. Here are pics of Mayor Laputka making the announcement at Coleman Park where the tBall court will become the skate park! Present is our President Priscilla Ballasy and Casi Sprague Colin’s Mom and some of Colin’s skateboarding friends.

There is a list of folks I know,
All written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time,
I go and take a look.
And that is when I realized that
These names are all a part
Not of the book they’re written in,
But of my very heart.
For each name stands for someone
Who has touched my life sometime.
And in the meeting they’ve become
The “Rhythm of the Rhyme”
I really feel I am composed
Of each remembered name,
And while you may not be aware,
Of feeling quite the same.
My life is so much better
Than it was before you came.
For once that you have known someone
The years cannot erase
The memory of a pleasant work
Or of a friendly face
So never think my Christmas cards
Are just a mere routine
Of names upon a list, forgotten
For when I send a Christmas card
That is address to you
It is because you’re on the list
Of folks I’m indebted to.
And whether I’ve known you
For many years or few,
In some way you have had a part
In shaping things I do.
