Clinton Skate Park - Summer Clean-Up Day

JUNE 28, 2008 - 9AM-11AM
AntiGravity Skate, and a crew of hard working volunteers, organized a community service clean-up project at the Clinton, CT Skate Park.

The work included picking up trash, separating the recycling from the trash, sweeping and leaf blowing the entire skate park as well as raking around the perimeter fence. We hauled away four garbage bags of recycling, nearly filled four giant trash cans with trash and left the skate park sparkling clean.

We had a great turnout and finished with everything by 10:30AM. Everyone stayed and skated the park for another couple of hours with us.

This was a public service and NOT an official AntiGravity Skateboarding event. Therefore, waivers were not required and everyone skated at their own risk.

AntiGravity Skate Hosts Local Clean-Up Day

For so many local teens, long and smoldering summer months translate into hours of video games, boredom and indoor monotony. But AntiGravity Skate offers a fresh new approach to one of the most popular local recreational activities.
 
The group, which is the newest member of the AntiGravity X family, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Connecticut, advocating an alcohol, tobacco and drug-free lifestyle, provides a healthy outlet for teens while sprucing up the community at the same time. On June 28, 2008, the Christian-based organization hosted a well-received community service clean-up project at Connecticut’s Clinton Skate Park in Ethel Peters Complex just behind Joel School.
 
During this event, volunteers worked collaboratively for two full hours, sweeping premises and gathering huge cans of trash, recycling, leaves and debris. Organizers were extremely pleased with the day’s turnout and volunteer enthusiasm. After their work was complete, volunteers enjoyed their first skate of the summer season across smooth, spotless ramps and obstacles.
 
AntiGravity Skate is an innovative new project best known for its portable skate park packed within a massive diesel truck that tours New England. The organization provides free, safe sporting events to local communities, attracting kids, teens and parents alike. In just a matter of minutes, volunteers unload and erect a full-sized skateboarding and BMX street course which includes the world’s largest truck-mounted 24-foot steel half pipe.
 
AntiGravity Skate hosts ongoing youth skateboarding outreach programs, skate picnics, festivals and community service programs, like its Clinton Park Clean-Up Day. The organization is currently scheduling skate park tour dates for kids of all ages and skill levels throughout the summer months. Events are a fantastic way to combat the summer blues, giving teens an exciting summertime social outlet.
