Stanstead teens try hand at fundrais­ing

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

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.
