Final Push for Lovington Skate Park


LOVINGTON - One family is in the final push to raise thousands of dollars to build a skate park in Lovington.

They have been raising money the past couple years. Just a few hundred dollars stand in the way, but time is running out.

They have until Monday to come up with all of the funds. Organizers held a rummage and bake sale Saturday in hopes of coming up with the rest of the money.

Judy Cumbridge said, "we did this in honor of the three little boys who lost their lives in Lovington in a car accident. We think that it will benefit our community um help keep our kids busy and something to do in Lovington."

Back in January of 2011, a horrible crash claimed the lives of four people in Lovington. This includes three young boys who loved skateboarding.

If they don't come up with the money, the village board will reject the project.

Visit Lovington Skate Park on Facebook for ways to donate.
