Martensville Youth Connection Helping to Keep Local Youth Busy Throughout the Summer Months

by Shanine Sealey

Martensville Youth Connection is always looking for new ways to keep the local youth engaged and active, and new opportunities to raise funds to help ensure this program continues to operate within the community.

This week, the group met at Paws Republic on Tuesday, at the Martensville Aquatic Centre on Wednesday where the first 10 youth to sign up get in for free and get $5 worth of concession snacks and on Thursday, the MYC meet to play Bingo at the Martensville Care Home.

The MYC is a free, not-for profit program and therefore is often in need of certain items, which they post on social media for anyone that is interested in helping to support them. Most recently, the wish-list consisted of: suduko, crosswords, word find and other puzzle books for seniors; paper confetti, slime-making materials such as Gillette shaving cream, borax and soap, journals, pool toys such as floaties, throwing rings, beach balls, etc., fidgets, and self-care items.

On August 16th, there will be a Martensville Youth Connection Golf Day taking place thanks to the support of The Legends Golf Club, Direct fencing Supply and the City of Martensville Sask Lottery Community Grant Program. This event will give MYC the opportunity to host an evening of golf for youth ages 10-17. There are only ten spots available for this event, so be sure to register ASAP.

There will also be a golf tournament held in support of youth mental health at The Legends Golf Course in Warman on Friday, September 15th for an 18-hole ‘best ball’ tournament. Funds raised through this event will go towards supporting Possibilities Recovery Centre youth mental health programs, which includes MYC.

Organizers are currently looking for support from local businesses/individuals that would be interested in donating items for the silent auction. Contact Katie@possibilitiesrecovery.ca if you are interested in donating to this amazing cause.
