The Youth Finally Have a Place To Call Home!

Yes, the rumors are true !
The old Ferguson Fire House #1 (next to Ferguson City Hall) is now the official home of the Ferguson Youth Advisory Board (FYAB)! This new location will now house many of the upcoming activities for FYI including the Earn-a-Bike Program, Remnant Candle & Ferrarium making and the upcoming Open Arts event.  Other youth sponsored events are being planned.  Stay tuned to this newsletter and or website.
