New equipment added to skateboard park

GOFFSTOWN - Thanks to numerous donations, three new pieces have been added to the Goffstown skateboard park.

According to Goffstown Recreation director Dave French, nearly $4,000 in donations was received for some new stairs, a rail and a bench.

And on Saturday, Nov. 14, despite heavy rain, members of the Goffstown High School baseball team and skateboard enthusiasts gathered to install the new skateboard park equipment.

“This was a great opportunity for teens to get together for a worthwhile cause to do something positive for the community,” said recreation director Dave French.

The Friends of Recreation donated $1,000 to the cause. The rest of the money was received through memorial donations, as requested by the family of Nicholas Hamel, a 20-year-old Goffstown resident who died in August.

Hamel was an avid skateboarder and a player with both Goffstown Junior Baseball and Babe Ruth.

Tom Sousa of Sousa Signs has also donated a sign in memory of Hamel to display in the skateboard park.
