LYONS, MI - The village of Lyons doesn’t often get personal attention from famous celebrities. But the work of several local skaters and supportive community members drew both a cash grant and some advice from professional skater Tony Hawk.
The village recently received a $5,000 Tony Hawk Foundation grant to improve the village’s admittedly small skate park. They are one of only 14 communities nationwide to receive the grant this winter.
“It was great,” said Lyons Department of Public Works director Susan Craft. “For a small town, getting the Tony Hawk grant is huge.”
