The location was the Twelve-35 Teen Center, located at 1235 Chapala Street. The theme was ‘Back-to-School’; the idea being to give area students something to look forward to doing on the weekend besides homework or cruising around looking for action. More than 85 area teens joined the free event to dance, mingle, listen to their favorite tunes, or just to see and be seen. PAL organizers provided healthy snacks, a shuffling competition, and raffle for a free bicycle.
PAL has planned many other teen events this school year, including organized sports and more dances. The Teen Center is open Monday through Friday, from 3:00 to 7:00 P.M. PAL staff is always on hand to promote positive learning, mentorship, or provide a listening ear.
