ATLC supper a success

The Aroostook Teen Leadership Camp (ATLC) program recently held a Super Supper fundraiser at the Presque Isle Snowmobile Club. Community members, friends and those involved with the camp could buy one of two tickets for the event — a dinner-only ticket, which allowed guests to enjoy a three-entrée meal, or a dinner and prize ticket. Those who purchased a dinner and prize ticket were also guaranteed of receiving a prize valued from $25 to $2,500.

Mistresses of Ceremonies for the  event were Christina Hallowell of Presque Isle and Stephanie Dame of Mars Hill, both highschool students who attended an ATLC summer camp program and are now members of the ATLC program staff. Melanie Lagasse of New Sweden and Tim Graham of Mapleton contributed their time to prepare and cook the meal served at the event, along with assistance from other volunteers.

ATLC is a leadership development and drug prevention program serving Aroostook County teens in grades 6 through 9, and is sponsored by Aroostook Mental Health Services, Inc. In addition to receiving funding support from County service organizations, businesses and grants, ATLC is now developing several annual local fundraisers throughout the year in an attempt to achieve more financial stability for its future. 2011 will mark the 25th year for the Aroostook Teen Leadership Camp program.

The planning committee has already begun planning for next year’s Super Supper.

Members of the ATLC would like to thank all who made the event a huge success. FMI, contact Jack Foster at jfoster@amhc.org or 498-6431.
