Dear Parents / Guardians,

As most of you know we held a parents meeting in August to discuss past, present and future opportunities at the Youth Centre. This meeting was a successful meeting with lots of parent input on programming.

During the meeting we discussed the possibility of doing a 3 day trip to Toronto to see the Ontario Science Centre, Canada’s Wonderland, and the Toronto Zoo. We would stay at a camp for the 2 nights. We would be travelling by bus while on this trip.

To get to the point, we will be holding a Parents Information Night on September 25th at 6:30pm. At this meeting we will discuss the total cost of the trip, which will include fees, food, busing and accommodations.

            Any and all parents interested in sending their youth on this trip MUST attend the meeting!

Please RSVP to the Youth Centre by September 20th, 2013

 

Hope to see you there,

SPORTS PROGRAM AT MG: As always the sports program will take place on Thursday nights at Maple Grove from 5:45-7:30pm.

On the evening of the Dance-a-thon, we will have a silent auction and bake sale, as well as an opportunity for people of all ages to dance the night away and possibly win the grand prize of $100 plus an Ipod Shuffle.

Movie Night!! Join us on Friday for our very first (official) movie night on the BIG SCREEN! There is a cost of $2.00 which gets you one slice of pizza and one drink. We will be watching "Race to Witch Mountain" starring The Rock. It would good to let us know if you will be attending so we know how much pizza we should get.

Thank you to everyone that purchased a pumpkin pie for United Way. They were SOOOOO GOOD! And we were able to raise $321 for the United Way of Lanark County. A HUGE thank you also goes out to our favorite baker, Marlene Scott.

We are going to once again be making our delicious pumpkin pies to raise money for the United Way of Lanark County. If you would like to place an order, please contact the Youth Centre by Tuesday October 6th. The pies will be ready just in time for Thanksgiving; please pick them up on Friday October 9th. We will not be here on the weekend so if you don't get them that day, you will have to wait until Tuesday.  Pies will be going for $6.00 each.

You can place your order by calling the centre, sending us an email or through our online form on our contact page. Last year we made about $125, so this year we are aiming for $150!!

Thank you for your support!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

First of all, thank you to all those that came out to our BBQ on Friday. It was a beautiful afternoon, and it was great to see so many youth out as well. By the end of the day, we ended up selling $105 worth of hamburgers and hot dogs.

There will be a new program starting up next week - Road Hockey Tuesdays. It's the LHYCI Road Hockey league, so we are hoping to have enough interest that we will be able to form teams that will play together every Tuesday this fall.

We are also starting to think about United Way fundraising this fall, and we are looking for all the help we can get! We will get baking pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving (they were such a hit last year!) and having a Craft & Bake Sale in November. Join us Tuesday evenings when we will be working hard on various craft projects to prepare for this event.
