Time for activities in Charlotte

  • Jul. 9, 2014 4:00 p.m.

Submitted by Alissa MacMullin–Summer is here and it’s time for activities! It’s wicked to see how many youth are using the skate park and bike jumps this time of year. Helmets are mandatory on site and you may be asked to leave if you are consistently riding without one. We hope to see all heads protected. Contact the Youth Coordinator or drop by the village office for a helmet if you or your child is in need. Have you seen the new multi-use youth centre yet? We have iMacs, video games, art supplies and bikes for use! Feel free to drop in and take a peek on weekends from 7 pm to midnight, Friday and Saturday. We are always looking for volunteers and donations. If you have any kitchen items in good shape, we would love to check them out! We are also looking for sporting equipment like hockey balls and sticks, basketballs, soccer balls and more. If you have anything you would like to donate, email vqcyouthcentre@gmail.com or leave a message with the Youth Coordinator, 778-349-4219.Youth events are being held July and August by various community groups! Be sure to sign up for 3-on-3 volleyball at Skidegate Days, $50 entry and contact Meighan Wilson. Helen and Bonnie are hosting free music nights for all ages, beginning at 7:30 pm. The youth centre has a DJ scratch board and a drum kit for musicians and beginners. Check out the mural on the skate park if you’re around, it’s beautiful! Youth and local volunteers have been working together, along with artist Fanny, to make the space more inviting.Do you have a pre-teen eager to check out the teen centre? Send them down to Pre-Teen Night on July 21 from 6 to 9 pm, $2 entry per person. We’ll have a smoothie bar, music, video games, bikes and skateboards for use and other fun activities. Open mic nights on Friday’s at 7 pm in Spirit Square! Listen to local talent, bring your own instruments, and dance the night away. The Youth Centre will be fundraising at the Music Festival this year. We will be promoting natural body products with a workshop table to make your own products to take home! We will supply recycled containers, but you can receive a deal if you “BYOC” or “bring your own container”. Come out to support the youth centre and our fundraising efforts!
