Reminder: Imput is Always Welcome

Hey guys, I'm looking for your imput and ideas on what to plan for Teen Scene this coming year.

Whether it's what books (or CDs, DVDs, etc.) you want, a possible online feature, new programs, or an old event you'd like to see brought back, I'd very much like to hear from you.

You can comment, email or even better show up at next month's YAAC meeting (Jan 13).

Game night is still on for this Thursday.

Oh, and in case I don't see you before then: Merry Christmas everyone!

This Thursday, Dec. 14, 6-8 PM Movie Night, A Christmas Story (PG)

Dec. 21 6-8 PM Game Night, DDR

Dec. 28 6-8 PM Movie Night, She's the Man (PG-13)
