LaGrange Youth Council to Host Teen Event Thursday, March 30th

Flyer Created by LYC Members

The LaGrange Youth Council will be hosting a FREE teen event “Donuts & Duets” Thursday, March 30th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This fun karaoke night for teens will be held at Local Groundz, 407 North Greenwood Street in LaGrange.

Every person who attends the event will receive a free donut. All local teens are encouraged to participate in this free event.

Members of the LaGrange Youth Council voted on two projects for the 2022-2023 school year. This event for teenagers is one of the projects focusing on providing a social event just for teenagers.

“We wanted to host this committee to give people my age the chance to have a fun, entertaining night in LaGrange,” said Committee Chairperson Render McLeod. “One thing I believe LaGrange lacks is a fun, safe way for teenagers to spend their time and I hope the first ever Donuts & Duets gives them that opportunity.”

The second project focuses on encouraging the elderly and veteran communities. This committee will be delivering goodie bags to individuals who may need some encouragement. The group wants to make sure the older generation knows they are loved and appreciated.
