YAC News:
 
The Los Alamos Youth Activity Center held its final Hawk Hangout last Friday. The special event was sponsored by the DWI Planning Council and the Rotary Stars program.
 
Burgers, drinks and a dunk tank made the special middle school only event, a highlight for all. Youth also discussed the importance of not allowing alcohol to play a role in their life with a local Prevention Specialist, using the My Instead program. www.zeroproofnm.com offers parents, teachers and youth a wealth of resources for making healthy choices.
 
The Youth Activity Centers are run by the Los Alamos Family Council through funding from Los Alamos County and community partners including the United Way of Northern New Mexico.
