THANKS TO OUR TEENS
FPPL teens are special!! Keeping in the spirit of Thanksgiving, teens made and donated pumpkin mini muffins to the needy. Great job!
Come in from the cold and hang out in our Teen Zone. You'll have the best seats in the house.
October was filled with contests galore for our FPPL teens!
To honor Halloween, we had our popular candy counting contest which many Teens entered! But, unfortunately we could have only one winner....Marwa Alami! Congratulations to Marwa and all who participated!
Celebrating Teen Read Week proved to be challenging to our FPPL teens! And so many of our teens met the challenge! Everyone who participated will be receiving a special gift bag prize from Tulip Sweet Shoppe and gift certificates courtesy of Panera and Applebee's!
