This week we’ve got State House lawn games, a necklace making workshop, teen council and more!

TODAY:  State House lawn games!  Wiffleball?  Frisbee?  Cornhole?  Do you have a suggestion?  Come down to the Basement and let’s get something going!

TODAY or TOMORROW: The sketchbook project got postponed a bit, but we will be sending it out onto the streets either today or tomorrow.  We would like a group of teens to help us find the first community member to get it, so if you’re free this afternoon and are interested in sketchbooks, you should come help us out.

TOMORROW: Jackie will be hosting a workshop on necklace making.  If you’re interested in making your own jewelery, or just want something unique and cool to wear, you should definitely check this out.

WEDNESDAY will be September’s Teen Council.  As always, there will be pizza, and we want to hear whatever you have to say.  What are some things you would like to see happening at the Teen Center this month?  Let us know and we’ll tell you about some fun ideas we have, too!

UPDATE: Teen Council will be next Wednesday, September 21.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  This WEDNESDAY, we will instead be doing a tournament day.  What kind of tournament?  What kind would you like to play?

Montpelier is not the biggest place in the world and sometimes it can feel even smaller.  The devastating floods from Irene have brought a lot of attention to issues in Vermont recently, but what, exactly, is happening beyond the Green Mountains?  And what are people your own age doing in different parts of the globe?  What have you heard about the riots in London?  What about Greece?  TV news can be unreliable and the internet is so massive that knowing how to find good information is not always that easy.  We know that you’re back in school now, but what are things that you want to know about that you don’t hear at school?  If this sounds like it might be interesting to you, come down to the Basement on THURSDAY and we can delve further into these topics.

Update:  Thursday might also be a good time to talk about the flooding in Vermont.  Montpelier may not have been hit that bad this time around, but you don’t have to go too far to find places that did get hit hard (Northfield, Waterbury, and Moretown are just a short drive).  There’s a good chance that you know someone effected.  There has been a lot of help pouring out from all over Vermont, but there is still much more to be done.  How can you help your friends and neighbors?

FRIDAY:  Open until 10pm!  Sorry about closing early last week.  We’ll figure out a way to make it up to you this week.
