|Message||I learned to skate at Babb's when I was two years old. Now 38 years later, I'm glad to see that the State of Connecticut is trying to help with the restoration. I wish that there were more skating rinks like Babb's with the wood floors. The plastic ones are terrible. Hope all the restoration works to the advantage for without Babb's life wouldn't be worth living.|

Thank you so much for your time this Sunday afternoon. It was truly unexpected pleasure!. I stopped on a pure whim. Not expecting to get the grand tour. I think it's great that you are so dedicated to this project for what ever reason has put you in the position of it must be meant to be.. and I was really impressed at your passion for it. I wish that I was in a better
position to help with a donation .I really do believe its a grand project ,one worth pursing.With the way life is right now. it would be great place for everyone to enjoy. the specical momemts. Life is just too shortl!!!
I left with a nice feeling of nostalgia of my teenage years and a feeling of what it must have been like when my mom was a teenager and . It really must have been " the place" to be in its day.
Hopefully the dream will come true and Babbs will be "the place to be" once again
Daisy & Lucy also enjoyed the vist as well

I have fantastic memories of skating there as a kid in the 70's.
Some of the best times in my life were growing up in Southwick !
Congrats and a big Thank You to all those doing this fine work.

|Message||When I lived in East Granby for a short time, I was very interested in the news of the restoration.|
Sounds like it's coming right along.
Good luck and I hope the 4th of July party is a blowout!
|Message||Great place. Used to live on South Pond many years ago. Actually skated there when it was open then. If we lived closer I'd jump in. This will definitely be a huge attraction for everyone in the area and kudos to those pitching in.|
