Wednesday, April 4, 2012

One of the many popular games played at Skateland on Sunday was skating under the limbo bar. Two adventurous girls took their turn seeing how low they could go on skates. [Times Photo by Karen Waltrip] [Order this photo]
Sunday's free skate at Skateland in Monett marked the last day the popular and long-time business was open.

A large crowd turned out at Skateland in Monett on Sunday for a free skate in the afternoon as patrons bid farewell to the Monett business, which closed after 32 years under owners Doc and Donna Brewer, and their daughter, Cathy Stockton, the main owner of the Monett venue.

It was a nostalgic afternoon for patrons and owners at Monett Skateland during the final afternoon of business on Sunday. At center, Christina and Jeffery Stockton, children of principal owner Cathy Stockton, looked at photos of past activities at the rink as they handed out skates for the free skate afternoon.

Dang Jeeves!! What a bummer about Skateland. I know you & Lisa grew up in that place. I had no idea they were to close...I'll bet you were taking these pictures through your tears.
