Teen Space Construction

The construction on the Teen Space has begun. Our four volunteers worked hard all evening taping, painting and stuffing our "Foof" chairs. The wall will be black with flourescent splatters.

We started with a gray base and will finish with the black during the next session. The guys have yet to put together the table and chairs, and will also need to set up the video gaming system.

Remember to watch for our "Grand Opening" in March!
