New Teen Center Officially Open!
Last Wednesday, the Village’s Teen Center opened for the year in its new location. There are far too many organizations and people to thank for the opening of the new Teen Center at the Village-owned firehouse building last week, but it would not have happened without the following: The Village Board in Greenwood Lake – and their commitment to ensuring our kids have a safe and healthy environment to grow up within the community, the GWL Coalition Against Drugs and Alcohol – the sponsors of the Center, our Grounds team led by Ed Bilello, the young ladies from Girl Scout Troop 427 for making this project their Silver Award – Samantha Toscano, Riley Persico, Emma Sorace, and Daniella Persad, the countless volunteers and people who donated items to the center and of course, would not have been possible without the dedication of our Center Coordinator – Chris VanVooren. Thank you so much to everyone involved. Your dedication and hard work is an investment into this community that will have a profound impact for generations to come.
The Teen center is open every Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. for under 13 and from 6 to 8 p.m. for ages 13 to 18. We are in the process of installing a basketball hoop – with material and labor being donated by local contractor Tony Romanish of Walls & Patios (Thank you Tony!). If you would like to volunteer for the Teen Center, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
