Montrose Youth Council Promoting Rock the Rec Event
Montrose, CO — The Montrose Youth City Council is encouraging all area high school age students to participate in the upcoming "Rock the Rec" event as a fun and safe party during the holiday season.
Rock the Rec is scheduled for Friday evening, December 13, from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Montrose Recreation Center, located at 16350 Woodgate Road. Parents are asked to sign and complete a waiver form before arrival. That form may be found at www.MontroseRocktheRec.com
Since it will be Friday the 13th and the weekend before finals, the theme is “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” During the event, the movie, directed by Tim Burton, will be played in the gymnasium. There will also be a murder mystery party going on in the front lobby area that is themed, “Twas the Night Before Murder,” for those who would like to get their detective skills on.
"Montrose Rock the Rec is a fun and safe way for teens to get out with their peers," said Josie Coulter the Montrose Youth City Council's Public Information Officer. "Montrose Youth City Council provides a safe space so that teens don’t go out and get involved in activities that may get them in trouble."
The Montrose Youth Council was established by the Montrose City Council to encourage greater youth participation in the city’s government, and is charged with actively advising City Council with thoughtful recommendations on issues concerning youth and assisting city staff in considering youth perspectives in its planning efforts.
The Youth Council meets each Wednesday afternoon from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Centennial Conference Room, located at 433 South First Street behind City Hall.
