Late Nite @ the Y

Friday, January 26th, A Safe and Fun Night Out for Teens

The Coalition and the Chapel-Hill Carrboro YMCA are hosting the second in a series of safe and fun evenings out for all area high schoolers (grade 9-12). This "Late Nite @ the Y" event has been expanded to include all Orange County Schools, Durham Academy, Carolina Friends and Emerson Waldorf students. It will be held on Friday, January 26th from 9 pm to 12 Midnight. Two future Late Nite's are scheduled for Friday, March 23 and May 18th.

We'll have a D.J., dancing, full-court basketball, Walleyball, concessions and to top-off the list of fun things to do, kids can try out the Y's newest acquisition, "Dance Dance Revolution"!

To ensure everyone's safety, Chapel Hill and Carrboro police officers will be on-site as well as Y staff and parent volunteers to provide adequate supervision.

Cost is $5 per person at the door.

Once again, I would like to express my personal gratitude to the YMCA for providing their leadership, facility and youth expertise in hosting these events for our kids. Together, we support our youth in making healthy choices about their lives and we are committed to providing them with safe and fun-filled opportunities where alcohol and drug use is not peer-pressured or expected.

I hope you will join with me in showing support for this and similar events. To volunteer for "Late Nite @ the Y" or make a donation to YMCA hosted substance-free activities, please contact me or Jeff Lloyd at the YMCA 942-5156.

All my best,
