Letter: An ideal spot for local teen center

Posted

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

As a board member of the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of the Berkshires I enthusiastically read the July 26 story "Giving the youth a chance -- Rising ninth graders get opportunity to address some city issues" and the idea for a local teen center. We have it now.

The club recently completed a multimillion dollar renovation of the "lighthouse" and it (together with the other resources contained in the building) would be a perfect venue for these young people to convert to their new hang-out. I encourage Jordan Labonte and Reece Hyde to contact our new executive director Terry Hughes (448-8258 ext. 11) to create that teen center they desire.
