It took a crew of dedicated volunteers logging a lot of man hours for the project to get on its feet. And now they can see the fruits of their labour with the grand opening of Golden’s new Youth Centre.
The new centre, located in the old Crooked Antler space on 9th Avenue North, was found in August, and the group has been working hard to get it ready ever since.
When completed, it will have a small kitchen area, plenty of places to sit, study or just hang out, a stage for performing, a pool table (donated by the Nicholson Fire Department), a wood burning stove (donated by Parky’s), and space for various activities.
The Golden Youth Action Group, who will be operating the youth centre, have been working hard to get it ready for months now. The plan is to have lots of events and activities planned for the centre throughout the fall.
The Youth Centre Grand Opening Street Party will be on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. It will feature live music with special guests Willhorse.
The Golden Secondary School senior art class will be featuring their artwork around the centre for the grand opening. Their first assignment of the year was to create a piece for the youth centre.
All ages are encouraged to come out for this family friendly event.
