Major Discussion Elements:

• Many kids go to library after school - lots of energy & no place to go

• Other people other than seniors also need place to go/space needed 3-6 pm/ possibly want classes/snacks/computers/churches already insured

• Underutilized spaces exist in town; churches, etc./spaces could rotate/ adult volunteers may be available; could have a number of different places for different activities/ kids want a warm, safe place/ place to socialize or to do projects for school/ can walk as far as Main St. from High School / HS not available after 3pm


Next Steps/Actions:

• create clearinghouse of organizations in town to link org with needs with org with space or volunteers

• approach other clergy to discuss space uses/bring school superintendent into discussion

• Could schools provide space for kids to do projects/volunteer to man

• Community service hours required for grad - needs clearinghouse to put together students with necessary tasks
