Teen Lock-In Update

Sorry for the confusion, everyone, but the Teen Lock-In is back on at the YMCA as originally planned:  July 12th for ages 12-15.  Sweet.

YMCA Teen Lock-In / Babysitting / Twilight Movie

Posted by nchcplteens on June 11, 2008

I’m the bearer of bad news today: the YMCA Teen Lock-In has been cancelled for the summer. The Y is not able to run a lock-in on that weekend, and is very sorry… We hope to set a new date with them in the fall! But Mary Tait-Nicholson is coming our way with a Safe Sitters class. Get certified and prepared for that next babysitting job…even if it is just your little brother or sister, you could save a life. Details forthcoming.

Though we couldn’t do the lock-in, we can always, with great anticipation, watch the Twilight movie trailer on YouTube over and over again. Can’t wait!

UPDATE: THE TEEN LOCK-IN IS STILL ON FOR JULY 12th – ages 12-15 only.  Sorry for the confusion.  The YMCA moved around their major pool maintenance and got us scheduled again.  Whoo-hoo!

Teen Read-a-Thon 2008

Posted by nchcplteens on June 3, 2008

We had quite a turnout for our Teen Read-a-Thon on Monday! Good to see you there. I’m just catching my breath after some vacation time and summer reading is already off to a great start. If you haven’t signed up yet, you’re missing out. You could win an iPod Touch, Flip digital video camcorder, or $50 BAM (that’s Books-a-million to you) gift card.
