Skate World 40th Anniversary Celebration

Skate World recently refreshed its look with a new sign and colorful  building graphics
Skate World recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary, having first opened its doors back on August 27, 1975.

Here’s how the Lorain Journal covered it the next day (below).
The rink then celebrated its formal Grand Opening on Wednesday, October 1, 1975. Here’s the ad that appeared in the paper that same day (below).
As you can see from the ad, Johnny Sharp was at the Hammond X66 Organ for the festivities. Well, Johnny Sharp will be back at the organ for the 40th Anniversary and Reunion Celebration. It all takes place on Sunday, September 20th from 7 to 10 PM. Admission for this special event is $5.00 for all.
