Teen Center at Lawrenceville 1954

Lawrence County News September 9, 1954
The hopes and efforts of Lawrenceville's teenagers for a bigger and better teen center are about to be realized. Due to the unselfish effort and cooperation of several Lawrenceville citizens and a group of high school people, the center will be in use this Saturday night. Hours have been spent sanding and polishing floors, painting the walls and ceilings, and getting together equipment for the enjoyment of the young people. The center has a lounge with television, a dance floor, ping-pong tables, and a snack bar.
Eight committees each composed of 6 to 8 teenagers have been appointed to help maintain the center. These committees which had their first meeting Wednesday night are executive, finance, decoration, house, janitor, publicity, program, and equipment.

(If any of our readers served on these committees we would like to hear from you.)
