Scott,Lynn & Kyle attended the meeting along with several friends of the family & supporters of the BMX riders movement.Scott addressed the board and was given a warm welcome.Scott praised the county for all they have done to help to keep safety in mind when it comes our children and thanked them for considering the naming of the park in memory of his boy Kory. As the board made the decision to approve the name the Laos family and friends were moved to tears."Its been a long road but, we finally did it" Scott said as the entourage exited the hearing room.Now the real work begins as the family awaits a bond election to approve the funds to build the park.Mean while the Laos family will still be accepting donations and holding charity events to raise the money for the temporary parks construction.

The Laos family would like to thank everyone who has been there for them, Family,Friends and the many wonderful people, who they hardly know, that give them the support and strength to persevere in a time of hardship,to push in a time of weakness and to celebrate the love so many have received from there little boy.

Soon you will be a guest in Kory's Park,looking around at all the children riding and laughing,and you will be able to say to yourself how many of these children's lives did we save.If its just one,thats enough.
