 Message: I never had the honor of meeting you, but I skated and worked there. I skated since the 80's and worked there till '92 as a girl DJ.   That place was my home away from home. It's heartbreaking that my girls will not have the opportunity to skate there in the future and make great memories. But, even though Mainstreet usa , that's what we called it, won't be there anymore, it's great that so many friendships have been made through the years that will continue.  Good Luck on your new adventures!

 Message: I have skated at your rink since it opened. Brought my young kids, then grandkids, my third grade students and lots of friends over the years. I have skated through a divorce, a child custody battle. a cancer diagnosis for my mother and the night she died I was at the roller rink after the priest helped us say goodbye. Your roller rink saved my life and gave my family a wonderful place to grow up.Thank you!!

 Message: Well I must say, I\'ve had way too many memories to put just one. It's sad to see it closing after spending half my childhood here every Sunday :(  I am also happy, however, for Steve & Donna! They've had years of being super nice and I appreciate that. The rink will be missed but hopefully someone will reopen it!

 Message: I'm still young so I haven't been to this roller rink for years and years but last year I would invite a bunch of my friends each Saturday to go skating with me specifically and USA  because I love the set up and the employees are super nice! I was there on Friday and I went last Sunday my last day I cried knowing I would never be able to visit this rink again.

 Message: MY boys and I "FOUND" you a few years back and I am eternally greatful for a place that has felt like home that we have made SO many great memories. Ya see, boys are hard to bond with, but on that rink, they will goof with me, joke with me, hold my hand and skate with me. This time with them is IRREPLACEABLE. I appreciate the friendly staff, especially Steve, Donna, Stiffy and Lydia, for helping us feel at home, right from when we started coming. We will certainly miss this wonderful place and people. Thank you USA SKATE. Best of luck to all, Love, "mom" and her boys

 Message: Thank you for the wonderful experience I had at USA.  Thanks to a couple of people, I came to USA to learn technique for competive skating.  You were accepting of me and taught me a lot.  USA was a friendly, relaxed environment.  I will miss my time at USA (but am not giving up time with Donna yet).
