September JUMP Activities

Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau

What's Happening with JUMP this Month?

Thank you to everyone who came out and participated with the 7th Annual Bowling For Youth! We had a great morning and early afternoon, and we raised almost $11,000. Bowling For Youth is how we keep JUMP a program of the YSB, so THANK YOU!

As you can see, this is a new format for our monthly activity e-mails. I am trying this way to help eliminate all the e-mail attachments. If this format is difficult for you, please let me know so I can get the information to you in an alternative way.

This month we will be hanging out with Dwight Gallion on September 14th from 2-4 p.m. at the Lane Place (meet at the Pavilion). He will be in costume and talking about Wilderness Survival techniques and the Life of a Frontiersman. This will be a fun, interactive presentation. Be sure to bring a camp chair or blanket to sit on! We will provide bottled water and granola bars for snack - make sure you RSVP to Kayla or Jill by Friday, Sept. 13.

I have made a list of activities going on in September across the county. It is below. Also below between the Bowling For Youth photos is the flyer for our Sept. 14th activity. Please click it for more information.
