Teen Center celebrates first Christmas

With the Holiday Season upon us and Winter Break coming up quickly the Sedro-Woolley Teen Center decided it was time for some baking and decorating! Our amazing volunteer Sylvia Matterand joined us for two days holiday decorations and activities. While members waited for their turns to create some wonderful confectionaries, they decorated their Christmas Tree with homemade, salt-dough ornaments that they designed and painted themselves. Members also made their own wrapping paper and decorated boxes to put under the tree.

Christmas wasn’t the only Holiday our Teens were thinking about these past few weeks though. The Goodfellas group learned about the meaning behind Chanukah and what the eight candles of the Menorah represent. In Healthy Habits Members discussed their New Year’s Resolutions, which include getting faster and stronger, acquiring a job, and winning a Nobel Prize. In Youth for Unity, Members learned about the origins of Kwanzaa and it’s seven principles as well as how Christmas is celebrated in Japan.

Even though we are only open for three weeks of December the Sedro-Woolley Teens have been busy getting as much Boys & Girls Club fun in before Winter Break rolls around and they have to go two weeks without the Teen Center. How will they survive? Hopefully the presents and lack of school will help! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Sedro-Woolley Teen Center!
