Duty Now for the Future


For nine years, Sam Batterson ran “Breaking Ground”, a Providence, R.I. company that built skate parks. Last summer, he sold the business to a company in Joplin, Mo., he said. He got $40,000 for the sale, and as part of the deal required the company to give $10,000 to the Groton Skate Park Fund.

Batterson said he felt connected to Groton and knew his friend and former competitor, Jeff Paprocki, who also builds skate parks, would make the money go far.
