The Fort needs a fun and safe place for teens to hang out. We need to get some pool tables and video Arcade games etc. We could sell snacks and soft drinks and have pool tournaments for them. I dont like the idea of our Fort Towson Kids hanging out at our local bar in town. Teens need something to do.

So many of our teens are drinking and driving and i dont wanna lose our kids to this. Anyone have any suggestions for a community Fun Room for the Fort? We need a building to have it and donations of pool tables and video games and furniture and a place to have it.

I have often thought of the new depot building, but don't have a clue if they would let anyone use it. Also, maybe someone needs to notify the sheriff's office of the bar and minors.

I heard minors are permitted in the bar because they serve food. And parents sometimes bring their teens to play pool. I just wish we could do a better job in our town for our teens. I think the depot would be perfect for them! I wonder who owns it? Maybe we can get donations for the furniture and other items needed? We can use any income from the Fort Teen Fun for scholarships and such. Maybe we can get a grant to help put this together!

Do u think the city would donate the use of the depot as a community center for our teens? Wonder if the water company would take care of the bill for the water use? We all pay enough to the city for water to help cover that expense:)
