Champion skateboarder, Kyle Mendoza
Santa made a visit to Rockport's Aquatic & Skate Park on Thursday, December 22, 2016. In addition to taking photos with local children, Santa congratulated the winners of the Skateboarding Championship and admired the wreaths created with pool flotation devices. Becky Fox won the pool wreath competition with her re-use of a pool noodle to create a green wreath.

Although it is warmer in Rockport than at the North Pole, Santa admired the new towel warmer. The pool is heated to 84 degrees but it can be a challenge to emerge from the warm water on cool days! These activities and improvements are the brainchild of pool manager, Joe Riekers.

Skateboarding Competition winners were:
Kyle Mendoza--1st prize
Justin Ramirez--2nd place
Ryan Ramirez--3rd place
