Last day of Drama Club!

After all of the drama games, exercises, and the much anticipated skits with props we took our final bow on stage yesterday. Thank you so much for joining us. It has been truly amazing to see your children flourish into such confident, creative, and supportive individuals. I would also like to thank our YES volunteers for their support! I hope to see you all soon! 💗

Last day of STEM Club was this past Wednesday! We discussed what chemical reactions are, and that they are not just found in a lab. Chemical reactions are found in the world around us. We explored our materials and made a hypothesis on what would happen to the lemon if we mixed these substances. We were right! Our substances combined created a fizzy explosion! Lemoncano! Thank you so much to our wonderful YES volunteers, and our little scientists!

The Ken-Ton Youth Board, consisting of student representatives from 7 local high schools and adults from various fields in our community, organized a "Supporting Our Community" campaign to support those hit hard by the pandemic - nursing homes, food pantries, and healthcare workers - all right here in Ken-Ton. For the last two months, our community has come together to donate over 10,000 items - non-perishable foods, toiletries, cards and letters, money...We added an incentive for schools to get involved and are happy to announce that Mount Saint Mary Academy won the challenge and their students will get to enjoy a private screening at the Transit Drive-In, date and movie TBD! Thanks to our friends at Town of Tonawanda Police Club and Sheridan Parkside LIFE Center. MSM collected nearly 7,000 items! Yesterday, Youth Board members and YES volunteers passed out thank you cards, snacks, and cups of coffee to employees at Kenmore Mercy Hospital to say thank you for all they do, after a long and difficult year and a half. We would again like to thank Sheridan Parkside LIFE Center and affiliates for their help with that initiative.

We have wrapped up collecting donations and are now busy sorting and organizing them, and in the coming weeks will be dropping them off to local pantries so that they can benefit those in our community who need them. We'd like to thank all of the students, advisors, teachers, parents, and principals who championed this project, the community members who donated, and our amazing sponsors for making it all possible. 💙💚

Hi! We just moved to the area and wondering about baseball for 10U. Is there a town/house league or travel?
When will reopen??? Anything
We were very impressed by the young men and women working the Lincoln pool today. They were professional, respectful and pleasant while enforcing the new covid rules and restrictions. We had a great day. Thank you!
When will the public Rest Rooms be open? Where are my tax dollars going to in all this Corona shut down? Will I get a rebate on my Taxes? The residents of this town are getting ripped off. Can't use the parks or bathrooms, Town services closed, Open up our Town!!!
Any chance Veterans Park could have the grass cut? It's been at least two weeks and I found a deer tick on me tonight after visiting the park. Shorter grass would help keep those insects at bay. - thank you.
How is it possible there is not one Tee Time available for the next 10 days at either course. I check at 700am this morning and all the times were gone for the latest day that opened up. Something is wrong.
Could you please update information on your page regarding the potential for reopening of the Aquatic Ctr. The current post is dated two moths ago; you must have more current information, especially in light of the fact that up-state NY is now starting to reopen. Thank you
