The Youth Advisory Board members are well into their year-long term, learning about business and finance, practicing communication techniques, trying out their business etiquette skills, and more.  But after the November meeting, it was time to take a break and just hang out with each other.

After the November meeting, the entire group went to Co-Chair Conor McNamara’s house to carve pumpkins.  Things started off a little messy, but some amazing designed emerged, proving that these young people can not only be great leaders, but they can be creative artists as well.  Check out some of the fun photos from the day.
