In response to these notes about Our Community's Youth, let us
not forget that there are other activities besides sports that
attract our youth, from preschool through high school years;
and even continue on through adult years. That would be the Arts;
my specialty being M U S I C.
Ketchikan has a wealth of activities provided for all ages and
all year round.
We have wonderful artistic talent in 'our town'. We see and hear
the results of long hard hours of polishing often.
Our young people thrive in these activities, they develop skills
that help them in every day life as well the classroom and in
making friendships both here and out and about as they share
with other communities art activities.
'Our town' does a good job of providing for young people. It
is up to him-her self to make the wise choice to participate
in what will make for a healthy person both now and for his-her
We, the town 'elders' can provide, but ultimately it is up to
the young person to make the choice to participate or not. We
cannot make that happen, but we can encourage and support for
even a few.
Part of the process is having parents who care enough to set
guidelines of conduct and support.
SO let us go on providing and supporting citizens of 'our town'.
