Pro-Youth Movement Gets Together

City Councilmember Cathy Murillo wants to hear what “our youth need to make healthy, positive choices” and is inviting families to attend the next meeting of her Pro-Youth Movement on September 21 at Trinity Episcopal Church. Families and teens are invited to address the all-volunteer effort to curb risk factors for adolescents. So far, the creation of job opportunities has been identified as a priority. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., and students can receive community-service hours as well as gift certificates for area retailers.
