Purchase tiles to help Teen Center

As the New Year approaches, the Jamestown Teen Center is in its fi- nal stages to be up and running. We are very excited to be finishing up with painting and construction, and are readying the space to be filled with the computer lab, furniture, refrigerator, appliances and supplies. We will be inviting the community to our Grand Opening Celebration on Feb. 15, and will kick off winter vacation with an assortment of fun activities for teens. Although we are so close to finishing the project, we are still in need of many things to make the Teen Center complete.

So many people have been asking to help, and want to show their support for this new and upcoming addition to our community. Our "Tiles for Teens" fundraising project was created to do just that. This spring, teens will be creating ceramic tiles and installing a mosaic mural in the Teen Center. If you would like to support youth development in Jamestown, we encourage you to purchase a tile that will be displayed for future generations of teens. You can have your name on a tile for $20, purchase your own 4 x 4-inch tile for $100, or an 8 x 8-inch tile for $500. All tiles can include an inscription and your name, business or organization. All donations are tax-deductible and will help us purchase all the final details for the Teen Center.

Thank you in advance for helping us make this vision possible. For more information, please contact me at 423-7261 or email jamestownteens@ yahoo.com. Happy New Year!
