Teens, ages 12-18, are invited to join us at the Main Auditorium on Thursday, Jan. 12, from 5 to 7 p.m., for an after-hours, Nerf challenge event. Two challenges will be conducted. The first is a capture-the-flag mission. Teens will be divided into two teams with the goal to capture the opposing team’s flag. The second challenge will be to escort “The President” safely to a new location. Teens will be allowed to use Nerf weapons during both challenges.
