Start of CITY HARVEST Cooking Classes! We made yummy vegetable pizza and of course talked about the nutrition of it all. For the next 6 weeks we will keep up with these classes.
The Yale Fashion Show (hosted by Tamara) will be February 6th! Smart Youth is going to try and get permission to take this whole Friday so that we can get to the campus early, and get a tour! Then modeling for the show and carnival!

I didn't update for last Friday... I think we had a large group and are hardcore on Halloween Party Planning now! Gifts! Gifts! Gifts! Party is October 26th, we have another week and a few extra days to get everything in order! Gift Bags and Gifts are the major point now, everything else is settled. Get those emails out, and phone calls, and beg, and plead for donations! Whatever works! haha!

TYWLS SMART Youth were not able to attend this Friday, since we went on a college trip at Connecticut College. It was a nice trip though. From what I have heard, only 5 youth came, but it's okay, the weather was yuck, and TYWLS girls make up half of the group. Next week we have to get cracking on party planning, and are going to see Mama Mia, make sure to RSVP.

SYNC has had it's SECOND meeting! It is GREAT! We're already family! Such great new people, and old people finally getting the chance to combine with Casa, and form a SUPER youth group! ROOSEVELT! You're a GOD! He has gotten the food covered for the party ALREADY! IN A WEEK! From SYLVIA'S for FREE! WHAT!!!!!! AND SMART Youth will be seeing Mama Mia October 3rd, after meeting! Thank you everyone! Things are going GREAT!!! Soon You All NEXT Week!


SMART Youth (SYNC) has had it's official first meeting of the whole new group, now joined with Casa Kids, and other CAS! It was an excellent turn out, we're going to be focusing on the Halloween party for now, but have many plans for the Future! Recreational Facilitator Roosevelt was a great find! Thank You!
SMART Youth will be meeting Fridays at 4! Hope to see you there!


Samantha is studying abroad in Italy this semester so Christina will be admining this group as well as the myspace group and the blogger blog. If there haven't been any new updates just give her a poke. It's her senior year so she may not be able to update as frequently as she would like to.


SMART Youth will not be meeting this Thursday, but will continue to meet every Thursday for the rest of the summer.


SMART Youthers unite!

Also, SMART Youth will be meeting on Saturday. This is our last day with Janet so don't you dare miss it! It'll be bittersweet fun. *conflicted smile-frown-sob*
