"I am continually amazed by the difference a passionate group of people can make. For nearly 12 years I have been a part of the Palouse Community. Time and time again I have seen this town pull together to accomplish what seemed impossible. Once again, a group of dedicated citizens are sacrificing their time, money and energy to make the Tony Kettel Skate Gardens a reality. I have complete faith that this project will succeed--that Palouse will once again rise to the occasion.
Kids of Palouse will benefit from a safe and fun place to come together, to call their own. I believe the skate gardens will be that place. I can almost hear the laughter, the cheering coming from the middle of our beautiful town. I will do what I can to make this a reality, for my children, for your children, for all of us. Let's make the extravagant dream of our town a reality, once again."
