Tiffany's Place has been extremely busy this summer.The Wilkes 4-H and YMCA are
coming to Tiffany's Place as part of their summer camps and we hear it is the
highlight of their week.

Thursday's from 2p.m. - 6p.m. for middle high school. The weekend hours are
still Saturday from 8p.m. - 11p.m. for high school students and Sunday's from
2p.m. - 5p.m. for middle school students. These hours are for the summer only.

school starts in the fall.
The SPEC Program brought their children to Tiffany's Place on July
12th. We served them lunch and they had a wonderful time. We have
had an increase in new memberships this summer and we are seeing new
faces with current memberships weekly.
We now have two pool tables and the
dance machine continues to be a very popular item. Our teens are using
the dance machine as a form of exercise and are doing really well. For
the month of June Tiffany's Place had a total of 928 youth using the
teen center. We are very excited to see the facility being used by so
many teens this summer. We continue to talk with other youth
organizations and are working with them to set up times to utilize
Tiffany's Place for their meetings and possible field trips. If you
would be interested in using Tiffany's as a meeting faciltiy please
contact Melissa Walker or Crystal Stellmach at 838-1332. There will
be a 6th grade orientation day on July 26 from 12:00 - 8:00pm. All
upcoming 6th graders and their parents are invitied to come in and
check out what Tiffany's Place has to offer them. The teens' free
memberships and their free I.D.cards will be made on July 26th. Please
upcoming 6th graders in Wilkes County are welcome to come to the teen center on
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays during our summer hours and sign up also.
