Spot 394 a success 

Over 50 teens showed up and enjoyed various activities including Wii, basketball, cards and board games.  Music was filling the room while the pizza and soda were being consumed.  Smiles were in abundance with everyone staying to the last minute to get the final point ... either in basketball or on Wii. All left with a better idea of Spot 394.

Stay tuned for the date and location of the next Spot 394. 

On Thursday October 11th, Sam's Club presented the Ferguson Youth Initiative with a check for $1500 as part of their Ferguson Sam's Club Day.  Four other community organizations were recognized.  We appreciate the support and donation.
