New Youth Center Coming to Two Harbors

Old Oddfellows Hall is Being Renovated for Kids' Use

TWO HARBORS, Minn. – Kids on the North Shore will soon have a new place to hang out.

The Neighbor to Neighbor Thrift Store, run by the Two Harbors Christian Ministerial Association, is adding a youth center on the top floor of its building.

The room is actually the old Oddfellows hall, but soon will be home to an all–purpose rec center for area kids.

“We thought if we could get this up and running, it would be a great place for youth,” said Paston Jim Joseph, Neighbor to Neighbor’s General Manager.  “First thing we did was fix the fire escape, now we’re putting a furnace in on this level.  New windows are next and some plaster work.  Once the furnace is in, we hope to start using it right away.”

Work should be completed by fall, as long as the center can raise $30,000 to pay for the renovations.  Anyopne interested can drop off donations at Neighbor to Neighbor during business hours, or they mail a check to the store at 508 Seventh St., Two Harbors, MN 55616.
