Clothes make the picture

As a former roller skater, I can safely say that I never saw anybody dressed that nicely in a roller rink. How far we have come!

Amazing!

The change in society 77 years has wrought! Who could find anywhere today a group of young people roller skating on a Friday night dressed to the nines as these people are! They all look like they're ready for church come Sunday morning!

Probably early April

Since the St Patrick's Day adornments are still up.

All Skate
