A2 -- WEDNESDAY, JULY 2, 2003 -- THE SENTINEL C60s County BY JAKE WILHELM Bandon's new Commtmity Youth Center enters its firs: summer with a myriad of activities to keep young minds and bodies active. From pool tables to video games, from live bands to camping trips, from art classes to classes on how to find a job, director Bobbie Bolden and program director Rob Hester will make sure Bandon's youths have a busy summer. The center opened its doors last fall and now hosts 25-35 kids a day. The goal, Bolden said, is to give youths a fun, safe place to be anytime they want to drop in. Future plans include opening a coffee shop in the center, which will be run by youths to give them a taste of business life. Bolden credited the Bandon community for making the center possible with gener- ous donations. The center is also funded by organizations such as the Ford Family Foundation, Collins Foundation, Fred Mgyers and from revenue gained from their new thrift store on Highway 101. The center would appreciate any donations or business. For more information, call 347-8336, or visit at 101 SW 1 lth St, Bandon.
