Continuing the momentum from 2017 for a coming youth center is the goal for The Vault in Clinton.
Michelle Witzke's dream of having a safe place for youth to go is starting to pick up some steam in the community. She feels there was a shift in the community's mentality towards her dream last year and she's hoping to build on that going forward.
Between the student hours, fundraising and community manpower donated in 2017, Witzke says they made a lot of progress. She feels it is ready to go to start getting things together for a mid-summer opening.
Witzke says the plan is still to get the students into the center by June. She explains it would be a basic open and then in the fall they would start to add more things they hope the center will become.
Witzke thanks the community for their support all through 2017 and is excited for what is ahead in 2018.
