During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen more people seek ways to get outdoors and find new ways to recreate.

JP Pardy operates Recess Skate & Snow, he witnesses daily the positive impact that a facility dedicated to skateboarding has on riders of all ages.

When the Boone DIY skatepark was forced to close due to a property sale, JP and his team went to work on creating a permanent home for skateboarders in the immediate Boone area. Collaboration with local partners and a grassroots approach to fundraising saw the group begin to gain momentum -- until the impacts of a global pandemic slowed progress.

Hear the uplifting story about community partners encouraged JP to seek a competitive grant and how persistence paid off to help create a new destination for people seeking outdoor activity at just the right time.

From his same perch as a retail store owner, JP also explains why some items and brands, across all retail sectors, will not be available in their full quantity around the holidays, and what you can do now to ensure you get the items you need before the shopping crunch begins.

To help continue the fundraising for the Boone Greenway Skatepark, see this GoFundMe page.
