Annually Banyan hosts four gatherings. These are events where ALL the Banyan youth and their families gather for fun and friendship. Our winter gathering was held at Skateville. We managed to hold our balance steady on the outside ice; however once inside it became a different challenge! Hand holding, parent assistance, and rolling skate aids became essential.

Life lessons to be learned from roller-skating:
If you fall, get back up and try again!
Friends bring stability.
Parents are always there for you.

Such a fun night of parents’ date skating and high school youth racing. Elementary youth encouraging each other and middle school youth snapping selfies. Skate chains with friends and first timers bravely attempting to stand on wheels. Thanks for joining us in the adventure.
