Please find below information on events and activities taking place at or with the Niles Teen Center in the next couple of weeks.
1) Speaker Series- Thursday, April 16- 5:30- 6:30pm
Wright Way Animal Rescue
Learn about animal rescue and the adoption process. We may even have a visit from some of the adoptable animals.
2) New Furniture Donation- Restaurant Booths & Tables
The Teen Center recently accepted the donation of 6 commercial grade restaurant booths and tables. This will make for a nice upgrade in “sturdy” furniture for teen usage. It may take us a couple of weeks to get these in place and dispose of some of the “worn and damage” furniture. Please be patient as you may not have as much space until all of the old furniture is removed.
3) Top Golf Trip- Deadline Thurs. April 30- $40
Top Golf is the new game in golf that everyone can play! Revolutionary technology allows players to hit balls at targets in the playing field and receive instant feedback about distance and point value. Play against your friends or shoot for a high score! It might be chilly, but Top Golf has heated bays to keep us warm! No experience necessary and clubs are available for free rental. Fee includes a short lesson from an instructor, 3 games of Top Golf, a dinner of a hot dog, chips and unlimited soft drinks.
Date: Friday, May 8 Time: 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Cost: $40 (games, lunch, transportation, supervision)

6) National Day Calendar.
As a Christmas Gift, Mark received a National Day Calendar from his brother-in-law who is a rather unconventional thinker. This calendar does not list the any national, local or state holidays. But instead it is a calendar of fun and random holidays like “Hug a Plumber Day” and “Ice Cream Day”. In the spirit of fun, Mark will be providing these “holidays” each week as random and fun facts for teens and parents to enjoy and potentially use in their social media posts.
