Community Coffee House

August 19, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


This summer, when they weren’t on field trips or playing board games, the teens at Montpelier’s Basement Teen Center have been busy planning for their  Community Coffeehouse. With a whole new staff since COVID, and a whole new set of teens, they are excited to welcome community members to their space to see what they’ve been up to. They’re inviting everyone to come play cornhole, ping pong, and mario kart; check out their art, and enjoy live entertainment. There will also be homemade refreshments and handmade art available for purchase.

McKenna S., 14, has created a series of watercolor “Pride Skies”. They said that they were excited to celebrate all sorts of sexualities, and to share their art with others. Other teens are making linocuts (which have been printed onto flags, handkerchiefs, and postcards), acrylic paintings, and digital works.  Aylwin M., 17, is excited to share the video game he’s creating, much of it having been programmed from the comfort of the BTC couch! He, and others, will also be providing musical entertainment throughout the evening. Vaughn R., 13, has been perfecting his snickerdoodle recipe, and testing it on some very willing teens (and staff!). I think you can also expect scones, tea, coffee, and more.

The entrance on the right side of city hall and is also accessible through the back of the building. Everyone’s invited!
