TEEN PLANNING COMMITTEE Calling all teens! We would like to meet on 30 April at 1700 here at the Youth Center to start planning the grand opening of the new facility and discuss programs that will be offered as well as the hours of operation. This will be a process that I would expect to take a few months to complete. Plans made must be approved by the Garrison Commander prior to implementation. This is an opportunity to ensure the facility/program meets the needs of all eligible teens in the area. Please help get the word out! STEVEN A.
