Avenue A June 2014 News
News from Avenue A Teen Center
42 Main Street, Antrim
Greetings from Avenue A! With summer right around the corner, we have decided to extend teen open hours on Friday nights to be from 5pm - 9pm (except for July 4th, when we will be closed). Expect to see announcements about karaoke, open mic and other activities on those evenings on our Facebook page and on our sign beside the front door. Avenue A will also be co-sponsoring the July community supper in Antrim on Thursday, the 17th, so any teens that would like to be involved, please send me an email at email@example.com. In addition, we are planning a field trip to the Boston Aquarium, most likely in August, and will have more details upcoming!
Alateen, a support group for teens affected by loved ones or friends who struggle with alcohol addiction, is moving from ConVal High School to Avenue A for the summer. Meetings will take place on Wednesdays from 6-7pm, beginning on June 25th, for 13-18 year olds.
Alcoholics Anonymous continues to meet three different evenings at Avenue A as well. Meetings are on Sunday at 5:30pm, Monday at 5:30pm and Fridays at 10am. Heard it Through the Grapevine adult open mic night continues on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30pm, so come and enjoy our local musical talent!
Avenue A is in need of volunteers to oversee our Friday open hours, and we are in need of donations of items, such as bar chairs, sofas, a dish rack, book shelves, vacuum cleaner, wet mop, lamps, rugs, a laptop, musical instruments for open mic, such as a drum kit, keyboard and guitars,etc, so contact me at our email address, or at The Grapevine at 588-2620, if you would like to volunteer, donate items, or make a financial donation.

PSE Summer Tea & Chat
Looking to expand your support network? Join a group sharing their time and talents while saving money and making friends. The People's Service Exchange offers a coordinated network to connect those who have a skill with those who need that skill based on the Time Banking model where 1 hour of service = 1 Time Dollar, regardless of the usual monetary value. New members start off with 3 Time Dollars and can choose to spend them, save them or donate them. We are now using Time and Talents software hosted by hOurworld.org and have a whole new look with expanded possibilities. Join online at pse-nh.org or call Nancy at 588-2620. Internet access is not required for membership. Drop in for Tea & Chat Wednesdays 11am-Noon at The Grapevine in Antrim July 23-August 20. All are welcome! RSVP is appreciated but not necessary.
