Rollhaven Skating Arena

Yesterday afternoon, I went roller skating with a close, long-time friend and her kids at Rollhaven.

 

I hadn't been here since probably the Nineteen-Eighties.

 

I had an absolute blast!! The last time I went roller skating in the north Chicago suburbs, I was a mess out there, but this time, by the time it was over, you could barely get me off the floor.

 

They mixed in some songs I remember roller skating to - "Thriller"-era Michael Jackson, Olivia Newton-John, Whitney Houston - with current music. It all worked very well together - Kara, the DJ, did a fantastic job of mixing it up.

 

There was a fun, celebratory, clean and colorful atmosphere inside - with smiles everywhere.

 

It's like every time I go back to Flint, I rediscover something else I still love about going home.
