Cornwall Ontario — Families and children were amongst the 150 people wearing roller skates for the second annual Roller Disco. There was a pleasant and upbeat atmosphere at the St. Lawrence College gym Saturday night. The gym was illuminated with blue, green, yellow, and red lights, while participants spun around the gym enjoying the groovy dance music that pumped out of the speakers.
Penny Rudderham who is a member of the Seaway Roller Derby Girls shared her opinions about last night’s terrific event. “The Roller Disco was a success. I always love seeing people and their families having so much fun together. It’s an event that young and old can enjoy and most people really enjoy coming. I had the chance to reminisce with people about the good ole’ days at the local Roller Rink and have had many requests to host more events like this one. We can’t wait to do it again”, said Rudderham.
Penny Rudderham won’t have to wait long, because according to Vince Jasiewicz, “The next Roller Disco is ready in the works!”
The proceeds raised Saturday will help the Seaway Roller Derby Girls finance their upcoming season. Jasiewicz explains, “The profit made last night is going straight back into the league to assist with traveling to our away games, more uniforms and raising awareness about the Seaway Roller Derby Girls in the area.”
The Seeker would like to extend congratulations to the Seaway Roller Derby Girls team organizers and volunteers and give kudos to all the families and people who participated in the second annual Roller Disco.
