Basketball Court and Student Store are OPEN!

Following the grand opening of our Basketball Court ("The Court") on March 20, many middle and high school students have enjoyed shooting hoops and playing 3-on-3 in The Center's half-court basketball court! Below is volunteer Jamie Arseneault playing a game with Travis and Casey.

The basketball court is still in need of volunteers, and we welcome any adult who has an interest in volunteering with us to contact Julie at or at 756-5087.

In other exciting news, the High School youth council has been able to finally start the student store! A loan from a youth center board member enabled the students to pick up the items needed to start the store. The student store was an idea the high school youth council started talking about back in the fall, and have spent considerable time preparing for. All students involved with store operation attended a training course, and many of them were involved in the group that determined which items would be sold based on a cost breakdown of the items. I'm very proud of my youth council this year - they've done a great job! Keep up the good work guys!
