Zelienople Memorial Skate Park

Update posted by Megan Gass On Jun 14, 2019

From Trevor Barkley's mother, Linda Gass

This sk8pk will be built in honor of Zelienople's fallen firefighters; my son, Honorary fire fighter, 17 yr old Trevor Barkley, Jr. fire fighter, 18 yr. old Sam Bucci, & Jr. fire fighter, 18 yr old Elijah Lunsford, who lost their lives 1/26/2010, on their way to their fire fighter meeting, they lost control of their suv on a patch of ice and over turned into an icy lake where, they all drowned.....On the very day of this horrific accident, the boy's were all together having fun, working on their senior project posters! Trevor's poster that he finished, that very night, reads, "Because Skate parks keeps teenagers out of trouble and promotes a healthy lifestyle, communities should help fund and support a local skate park" We (Trevor's family) feel it is our purpose by, divine authority, to help make Trevor's dream come true, for our surrounding community's youth, to enjoy a big skate park, at the Zelienople Community park, in loving memory of these 3 "AMAZING" boy's and also, Geoff Gutzwiller; another young man who loved to skate board, who died too soon.

The Community has come together time and time again over the pass 9 years to raise the needed funds we need to make this dream a reality. It is all by dedicated volunteers and many donations from local businesses and local individuals. We are so close but just haven't reached our goal. Please consider helping us by donating what you can. I would love to be able to say we are fully funded for this project, because we had so many wonderful people help us.

Thank You
