As 2018 comes to a close, we are asking you consider supporting the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate park with your tax deductible donation, any amount helps us. The skate park has been fundraising for 15 months. We do at least one fundraiser a month. Each month we try to deposit at least $1000. We have tried to be original with our fundraisers and make them affordable and fun! Some of our more popular fundraisers were, The Skateboard Art show at the Conway Public library,The Wicked rides Car show at Tuckerman’s Brewery, and The 1st Annual Ride of Love with the United Bikers of N.H. Also popular were the Paint and sips, Craft fairs, Yard sales, and grow a beard for Kev competition! Cans in stores around town add up and have been a great way for children to give.
We were very active in the community attending the Funergy festival at the Community Center in North Conway, Teaching 30 children the fundamentals of skateboarding! We were invited to the Conway Elementary after school program to teach the basics. The kids had so much fun and they had a penny war to make a donation to the park.
We entered into the Cupcake wars, sold baked goods and pumpkins at the Fall festival at Settlers Green, Made a float for the Mud bowl parade and even won 3rd place! Handed out treats at trunk O Treat at the Fryeburg Fair Grounds and volunteered for Reach the Beach.relay race. We spoke on Valley Vision and on the Radio station Magic 104. The skate park was featured in Mount Washington Valley VIBE magazine.
The KPMSP has support from the Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Conway and our community!
Many local businesses have either donated or held fundraisers.
We also received donations from Eversource and the Eastern Slope ski area pledged back the money, given to them from a previous attempt to build a skate park for the Mount Washington Valley.
All our efforts have our total to about $30,000! Something we are very proud of!
