New twice-weekly program offered at West Center for middle-schoolers

       Not enough people signed up for an everyday summer program for middle-schoolers, but Westside Community Center leaders are hoping that a twice-a-week offering from 1 to 5 p.m. might prove popular.
       “We're hoping it will be something that will help parents this summer,” said center director Dick Siever.
       Continuing from July 7 to Aug. 6, the program will provide outings on Wednesdays and activities at the center on Fridays.
       The price should prove especially popular. When a daily program was envisioned, the cost was set at $75 a week. But the cost for the new offering is $50 total, with scholarships available on request.
       The outings will consist of a movie, a hike on a popular foothills trail, bowling, skating and swimming, a flyer states.
       Signups are limited to the first 13 participants.
       For more information, call 385-7920 Monday through Friday, or come to the center, 1628 W. Bijou St.
