December Carver Connection

Director’s Message:  As we head into December, I want to take a moment to wish everyone the happiest of holidays! We have lots and lots of activities taking place this month at the Carver Community Center.  In addition to our normal activities, we will be hosting basketball practices and games every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday throughout the month.  On December 7th, starting at 10 am, we will be hosting a Christmas Give away basketball tournament. On December 22nd we will be hosting a second Christmas Give away basketball tournament at 2pm.  PBS Friday and the Flagler Youth Coalition/Flagler PAL Friday Night Done Right will both be at the center on Friday December 13.  


Friday Nights Done Right: The Flagler Sheriff’s PAL and the Focus on Flagler Youth Coalition have teamed up to bring Friday Nights Done Right to the Carver Community Center!  Friday Nights Done Right is a free event for Flagler Youth ages 11-15 on the second Friday of every month. This event is designed to give our youth something fun and positive to do on a Friday night. Stop in for games, free pizza, snacks and sodas on Friday December 13,  from 7- 9 pm!
