Youth Center Now Open


A crowd gathered on Frisbie Field to the sounds of a DJ for the opening of the town’s newest facility for its youngest citizens Saturday afternoon. The facility has one large open room and is ringed by a modern kitchen, office and bathroom facilities. Residents strolled through the grounds and facilities throughout the afternoon, being treated to hot dogs, hamburgers and music. A dozen youngsters jumped in and out a bouncy gym and inside a group of girls demonstrated Zumba.

The completion of the facility comes after 6 years of work by the Wolcott Activities and Learning Center group, headed by DeAnna Morelli, local parents, businessmen and former educators. The Board of Education has been very supportive of the effort over the years when the group hosted dances, movie nights and other youth and family activities. The group has envisioned the project to not only include fun activities, but also afterschool academic support and mentoring activities.

On Monday, an open house and registration session will be held for residents interested in participating in the regular activities at the facility.
