ICYMIJennifer Loughran, kicked off today's highly successful Skate for the Paws event to benefit the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter.

 Skatepark with School of Rock. The event offered free music jam sessions and lessons all levels. The event was free, but we will be collecting donations. There was a  drawing to win a chance at a skateboard. This community event was for all, whether you skateboard or not, to come support the cause for the paws. Skateboard, rollerskates, scooters, and inline skaters were welcome at the busy event.
