In case you missed it, The Seattle Times published a great story last week about Broadview-Thomson K-8’s Friday roller skating nights, which have been a regular event for decades, bringing together people of all ages.
A member of Broadview-Thomson’s PTA contacted me to say they’ve received a ton of interest from community members since.
If you’re interested, the skate nights are managed not by the school but by Seattle Parks and Recreation, and run from 6:30-8:15 p.m. every Friday during the school year (closed during school breaks and during the summer), in the school’s small gym (also called the Bitter Lake Annex) near the big playground, 13040 Greenwood Ave. N.
Cost is $4 per skater; bring your own skates or borrow a pair there. You can get a skating lesson before the family skate from 5:30-6:30; register at the Bitter Lake Community Center or call 206-684-7524.
