July 24, 2019
The Sweet Home Youth Advisory Council is inviting local teens to participate in the 2019 Youth Leadership Summit Saturday, July 27, at Cascadia State Park.
The invitation is open to students in the seventh through 12th grades.
In its second year, the program will be held at Cascadia State Park, said City Councilor Lisa Gourley, adviser to the YAC. A relaxed historical setting, Cascadia State Park has petroglyphs, 150-foot falls, soda springs and beautiful scenery.
The location is an early native trading site and stopping point for settlers on the Santiam Wagon Road, she said.
