BACK TO SCHOOL!
It's that time of year again; football games, chilly sweater weather, crispy leaves, freshly sharpened pencils and, my personal favorite, countless cups of dairy-free hot chocolate(yum!)
Back to school as marks the start of the busy season at the Youth Center. We have been anxiously anticipating its arrival; definitely safe to say that we are ready for sweaty rounds of dodgeball, innumerable study sessions and, mostly, to see so many more smiling faces each day.
As you know, our beloved Executive Director, my father, Matt Congdon passed away back in June. Have no fear, the essence of the Youth Center will always be the same! However, there are some changes that we have made to increase transparency, outreach and communication.
You might have noticed that we crafted a new website. There are lots of features on here that will make the hassle of the school year a bit easier.
We now have a monthly calendar in place, which you can easily access on our site; this will allow you to see what is happening on the Youth Center each and every day, even what is on the menu for dinner! Our blog will not only highlight what's happening within the organization but will also serve as a fantastic tool for children and parents. We've also finally taken a step into the world of technology and are now active on Facebook(@glensfallsyouthcenter), Instagram(@gfareayouthcenter) and Twitter(@GFYouthCent). Follow us! Utilizing these platforms will make it possible for us to give you updates during any given situation such as snow days, guest speakers, exciting events, fundraisers and if there is ever an evening when we regrettably have to close shop a bit earlier than usual.
I'm looking forward to see what this school year has in store for us. Have a fabulous first day, guys!
