WAKEFIELD - Ten eighth grade students from the Wakefield Marenisco School District got up early on Mother's Day morning to wait tables at the Wakefield VFW Post 9084, in an effort to raise funds for a skate park to be built on the Eddy Park tennis courts.

The students came up with the idea during a social studies class last fall and presented it to the city planning commission. After some discussion, the commission and the city council approved their idea, provided the students come up with the funding and purchase certified equipment.
