Our end of the year event "Splash" brought together two great things of summer, music and water. Yes, Midland is far away from the water, so we brought the inflatable water slide and the dunk tank to us. The young people enjoyed the activities they had helped pick for the event. On a hot summer's day they battled it out on the basketball court playing 2-on-2 basketball, with burgers sizzling in the background and the slushie machine in full swing. Then it was time for the main event.
The young people had been looking forward to performing live as they had been practising and crafting their skills at the Tuesday music program workshops. With a healthy crowd there to witness the event, all the young people performed really well, showing little signs of nervousness and wanting to get up and do "one more" song. Clearly their confidence had grown! What an excellent way to end the year leading into the festive season.
