Happy 2016 all! I know I’m waaaaay behind on this site but there’s a good reason for it. I have been compiling my roller skating information and conducting more research to complete my roller book this year.
I started researching in 2009 and I’m ready to bring this baby full circle.
In the meantime, though, I am presenting roller skating history to schools, community organizations and other interested audiences, especially Baby Boomers.
I have two roller skating presentations coming up.
