Join the club – if you are young enough!
The Youth Day celebrations at Port St Francis this Saturday, which include a fun fishing competition, national board game day and a Teen Dance, are actually the inaugural social for the young ones in 6312. Dock’s (or Dock of the Bay) will in future be the den for those under 16 on a Friday night.
Anybody under the age of 16 are welcome to socialize on a Friday – and they are even more welcome to share their minds on what they want to do. The “to do” list includes bingo, quiz nights, kareoke, dancing, movies, dress up parties – or just chilling. In winter the times will be between 18:00 and 20:00 and in summer 19:00 to 21:00.
This Saturday is National Board Games Day, where people play board games at various centres all over South Africa. The games will be on between 10:00 and 16:00. You can also take part in the usual kids fun fishing competition off the jetties between 10:00 and 14:00. The cost is R25 per person, and bait, buckets, a cutting board and knifes will be provided.
The evening’s dance is in aid of the TaeKwon-Do Club. Funds raised will be used to buy mats for the new Sport Centre at Port St Francis, as well as sparring equipment. Tickets are available at the door at R30 and the dance starts at 19:00 (although parents are welcome to bring them during half time, as we know you will be watching The Game!). Please fetch them by 22:00. A tuckshop with hot dogs, sweets and soft drinks will be available.
Parents are welcome to wait at any of the Port restaurants, if they want to be close to their children. They will be in good hands, as Jo Brown (076 393 4092) and Esti Stewart (073 825 0835) are in charge (and parents will be requested to sign a Code of Conduct).
If you want to get involved in the Youth Club, please contact Jo or Esti. A big thank you to Mike Howell, owner of Dock’s, for making his premises available for our kids. If you have anything you would like to donate (or lend) to the Club, it will be most welcome – like table tennis, finger board (the kids just love the ‘old fashioned” games!)
