The Estevan Public Youth Centre (EPYC) officially reopened over the weekend, hosting a series of events to celebrate the occasion.

Executive director Merissa Scarlett reported a successful turnout, noting that between 30 and 40 children attended. "Everyone enjoyed the pizza, and I had the opportunity to meet many familiar and new faces," she said.

The youth were enthusiastic about the center's reopening, participating in a large version of Jenga, ping pong, air hockey, shuffleboard, board games, and using the video game systems.

Parents also expressed excitement about the reopening. "Some new parents were curious to see what the center was like," Scarlett added. "Two new youth left with their mom, and they couldn't stop raving about how much fun they had."

On Thursday and Friday, EPYC hosted painting nights for the kids to decorate the center's walls with artwork.

EPYC will be open every Friday and Saturday in May. Scarlett looks forward to welcoming more visitors and plans to seek volunteers to assist at the center. Volunteers will help supervise and engage in board games and other programming with the youth.
