Stanstead teens try hand at fundraising
Stansteadteens had fun organizing a Halloween fundraiser on Saturday, even if it wasn’t a big financial success. The Lounge ids’, also known as the members of the Stanstead youth group that meets on Friday evenings at the Culture and Recreation Centre, worked with Bishop's University students to decorate the Lounge and set up the snack station. The teens had hoped to raise some money for new items like board games and music equipment.
Attendance in the Stanstead youth group (the Lounge) has more than doubled since last year when an average of six to nine teenagers attended regularly. This year’s average Friday night attendance is between 1 and 1 . Donations are welcome and needed for this growing youth centre.
