Heartland Youth Center Keystone Club would like to send out a huge thank-you to everyone who attended this years annual Haunted House, it was a great success!

With a turn out of over 220 parents and children, the evening was busy but exciting.

Heartland Youth Center Boys and Girls Club will be able to enhance their after school programming, thanks to a donation of $10,000 by Sears Canada The Stettler Club was one of only 15 clubs across Canada to receive the Sears After-School Enhancement grant.

The Wednesday Kidpower program was having a glittery time last week, making pictures and decorations. Fun was had by all but the staff are still trying to understand the massive spread of sparkles throughout the center.

Boost, Spark and Energy had a huge Halloween party last Thursday, complete with blood-and-eyeball punch, poisoned apples and a limbo. Some very creative masks were make, Katie-Cat, Mantis Man and Tiki Man were just a few of the new identities that sprung from the activity.

Keystone spent Friday night with Loaves and Fishes last week, serving food and doing clean up for the Red Deer city organization. The trip was a new addition to the members yearly community service calendar and was booked months in advance.

The Loaves and Fishes staff were excited to have a teen group travel over to help out and hope that the club will make this a regular engagement.

Once again the Thursday night teen club Torch, would like to send a call out for new members. Anyone between the ages of 12 and 14 are welcome, with the only requirement being a $20 membership with the youth center. Once a month the club holds a Friday evening fun night from 7-9 pm, the next one being Nov. 13, and interested teens are welcome to come by and check us out, no strings attached.

Youth center staff, members and volunteers would like to encourage everyone to get involved with the United Way Campaign, that runs through until November 30th. United Way of Central Alberta supports two busy Stettler organizations, the youth center and the Association of Communities Against Abuse. Get out there and help a worthy cause!
