Many thanks for lock-in success

The Jamestown Teen Center would like to thank all who helped to make the "Dodge the Holiday Blues" lock-in and dodge ball tournament a success.

I would like to thank the Jamestown Education Foundation for providing us special funding. I would like to thank Jessica from the Women's Resource Center of Newport and Bristol Counties for helping to facilitate the event.

I would also like to thank Teen Center Coordinators Ben and Nico, from the Boys and Girls Club and Martin Luther King Community Center, for bringing teens from your program and making sure the night went smoothly.

The Jamestown teens had a great time meeting teens from Newport and wish to get together for events in the future.

Thank you to Joey Foxx and Deb Ruggiero from HOT 106 and Citadel Broadcasting for coming to support our teens. Thanks to Freddie Bingell from the House of Pizza for making sure the teens had enough pizza and to the Accidental Artist for providing us supplies for our holiday crafts.

I would also like to thank all the parents who donated food and supplies for the evening. Finally, I would like to thank the Teen Center staff for staying up all night and making sure the teens were well supervised and having a great time. Thank you everybody, we wouldn't have been able to do this without your support. Debbie Tungett Teen Coordinator
