New Year’s comes early for Westshore Young Leaders
The Lakewood High School Westshore Young Leaders planned an early New Year’s themed ice skating party on Sunday, Dec. 28. This is the third year for the ice skating party that was held at Serpentini Arena @ Winterhurst Ice Skating Rink in Lakewood. More than 40 middle and high school students from the Westshore school districts (Bay Village, Fairview Park, Lakewood, North Olmsted, Rocky River and Westlake) enjoyed an afternoon of music, skating and excitement. The students celebrated the upcoming year with party favors and delicious cupcakes.
The Westshore Young Leaders group has been serving its communities since 2010. The Young Leaders are dedicated to implementing strategies aimed at preventing and reducing youth substance use while encouraging healthy life choices.
The next Young Leaders meeting is Thursday, Jan. 15, 6-8 p.m., at the Bay Village Police Department, 28000 Wolf Road. The meeting is open to all middle and high school students. Plans will be made for the annual high school lock-in and the NCAA March Madness bowling party. For more information: westshoreyoungleaders.org.
