Common Grounds, the new cafe made possible by Youth for Christ and the surrounding community is hosting a Summer Kickoff event at their cafe Friday, June 17 from 6-10 p.m. Activities will include cornhole, ultimate frisbee, KanJam, nine-square, and a welcoming campfire. According to Denette Adams from Youth for Christ, this event will truly be the perfect kickoff to summer, providing an opportunity for the youth to make memories and enjoy themselves. In addition to the summer kickoff, Common Grounds is also continuing a fundraising campaign, with a goal of raising $40,000 by June 30. Their current pizza sale extends through June 14.
