Milagro Teens Showcase Talents at Holiday Party

By | December 18, 2018

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) hosted a holiday party for teens on December 14, 2018 at the Milagro Teen Center in Delray Beach, Florida. There was fun, food and an abundance of talent on display.

Many of the teens demonstrated skills they were developing in music, art, dance, writing and robotics. The teens participate in after-school enrichment activities offered at the Center, under the direction of Mr. Anthony, Mr. Ian, and Ms.Kelsey, who guide and motivate them. The Milagro teens continue to impress the Boca Raton Pen Women with their spirit and accomplishments.

Sheila Firestone, who organized the annual event, showed a YouTube video she produced, featuring her musical composition. Author and playwright Carol White discussed careers to consider in theater. Artist Roberta Melman showed several original oil paintings and discussed her art techniques and style. Poet Marlene Klotz read an original poem. Janet Kleinman discussed how Martin Luther King inspired her published book about him. And Vera Ripp Hirschhorn, author and university consultant, demonstrated stress-reduction techniques, a learning tool described in her new book on student development.

Refreshments and gifts for the teens were made possible through generous contributions from members of the Boca Raton Branch (NLAPW).

    It was a joy to share, present and exchange our passions with such talented and grateful youngsters. Above all, it was a most meaningful surprise to be hugged by the lovely singer who sang in Creole and high-fived by another student. A most delightful and rewarding afternoon!!!

    It’ has been a joy to watch the teens as they progress and mature each year under the watchful care of the Milagro Teen Center Staff. It is a worthy outreach project
