Anthem’s Youth Council hosting movie night
ANTHEM – The Anthem Youth Advisory Council will host a free movie night Friday, Aug. 14, at the Anthem Community Center. The event will feature the film “Dodgeball” on the big screen. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for a teens-only dodgeball tournament in the gym, and the movie will begin at 8 p.m.
AYAC will have snacks/soda for purchase. Attendees may bring bottles of water and are encouraged to bring blankets and pillows to sit on (no chairs are permitted on the gym floor). Because the movie is PG-13, attendees must be 13 to attend without a parent or guardian.
“This event builds on the success of their first movie night in March,” said Jenna Kohl, Community Executive Officer for the Anthem Community Council. “It’s a great opportunity for Anthem teens to celebrate friendships as a new school year begins, and it also marks the conclusion of the first year of the youth council.”
AYAC will recruit new members to begin terms this fall. Anthem youth ages 12-18 yrs. can apply to learn about how local government works and how community services are provided; raise awareness about the ACC, its mission and proposals among Anthem youth; share ideas about youth issues, needs and community enhancements; and develop leadership and operational skills and contribute to the future development and enhancement of Anthem.
“My fellow AYAC Advisory Board members (Ryan Halleran, Rob Linder, and Kevin Shaffer) and I are so proud of the work of the AYAC members this year,” said Kohl. “This event reflects their spirit and energy, and we look forward to continuing their good work.”
