The 22nd annual Junior Lock-In was held Jan. 3 at SSYC. Juniors arrived at 6:30pm with sleeping bags, games, DVDs and snacks in tow. They were ready to be “Locked In” the upstairs dining room for the evening. They would leave on Sunday at 10 a.m. The Junior Lock In is a special event for all active and involved juniors. To be eligible to attend the Lock In, they need to have a total of eight meeting and work days for the year. Thirty-one meet the requirement; 19 participated.
Special thanks to the chaperones for this event: Brian Adams, Dorothy Mietz, Sandra Doos, Jack Murphy and Stacy Trisco. You’ll recognize them around the club; they are the members walking around that look sleep deprived!
The evening consisted of video games, board games, cards, movies, hula hooping, tent building, devouring pizza, lots of laughter and continuous snacking. The chaperones reported that at around 3:30 a.m. the last of the kids finally yielded to sleep. Much to their chagrin, I arrived at 8:30 a.m. sharp to deliver a “wake-up” call and breakfast. A good time was had by all - even the chaperones!
