Back by popular demand indoor roller skating returns to the Raymond Family Community Center for a few sessions this fall.
"One of the most exciting things," says Cox "is that we have roller skating coming back!"
Roller skating returns Monday, August 29 and Thursday, September 1 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Raymond Center with more dates to follow before the ice skating season begins.
"There'll be a couple more dates within September and October. We're trying to extend it out, get [roller skating on] before the ice goes on in there, and then open skate happens and all of our skating programs open up."
