We’ve finally gotten this year’s garden started! It’s taken a long time to clean up the area and get it ready to go for new plants. This year we’ve planted a lot of wonderful veggies such as tomatoes, summer squash, hot peppers, and herbs. It will be so exciting to watch them grow and fill out the planting bed!
The Teen Center would like to give a huge thanks to The Plant Warehouse for their generous donation of plants! Thank you so much for your kindness!!
This past week at the teen center has been full of creation, experimentation, and fun! The teens exercised their STEM skills by creating and testing a variety of paper airplanes. They were very successful in getting those planes to fly far!
They also took on a great art project–stained glass window hangings! Using glue, tissue paper, and wax paper, they were able to create beautiful, abstract ‘stained glass’ art.
Kelly, our fabulous teen center manager, brought in all the supplies to make balloon animals! Not only did we end up with a selection of balloon creatures, but we ended up with balloon flowers and balloon swords, too. It was so much fun!

What makes sushi sushi? Most people think it’s all about the fish, but it’s actually all about the rice! Sushi rice is cooked rice that is seasoned specially with rice vinegar and sugar. The seasoning gives the rice a special sweet/sour flavor! Teen center members had the opportunity to learn about sushi and watch an in-person demo on how a sushi roll is made. Afterward everyone got to taste some delicious expert-made rolls!
Springtime is finally here! The trees and flowers are blooming all around town, and the days are getting longer. Teen Center members have been embracing their artistic side as well! Painting seems to be the medium of choice and they’ve been painting on anything and everything (including themselves)!
Hello everyone! Due to the good efforts and work of everyone in our community, the Teen Center will be able to open back up. We will open our doors again on Monday, March 29th. We’re so excited to see our amazing Teen Center Members again!
