Terrell Co. starts Saturday program to keep kids safe

Posted: Updated:
DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

Terrell County kids have a new place to hang out on Saturday mornings.

It's the Terrell Resource Center on Oak Street in Dawson. They held the kick off for their Saturday program.

Young people will get to learn about healthy eating and cooking, and play sports, including archery. Organizers say this program will bring something positive to the community.

"We have a lot of kids in Terrell County and really there is nothing constructive for them to do on Saturday's and with the Saturday's Institute this is going to keep our kids of the streets to be in a healthy environment so they can learn how to take care of themselves and just be good citizens," said Mary Browner.

The program is free, and will be held on the first and fourth Saturday of each month.  Organizers say it will not conflict with the Flip program. The program is from 10 a.m. to Noon. It's offered for third grade and up. Call 229-995-6521 for more information.
