Book club is currently reading the wonderful “Motorcycle Diaries” by the revolutionary Che Guevara. It chronicles Che’s pre-Cuban revolutionary life by describing his adventures with companion Alberto as they traverse the South American countryside. Next week we’ll start reading Aldous Huxley’s classic “Brave New World!” Interested youth should come to the Key on Monday nights at 7pm for more information! Happy reading
WHO KILLED MR. BODY?!
Was it Colonel Mustard, with the wrench, in the conservatory?
Find out at The Key on Tuesday, July 12th, from 7-10pm, for another special Family Game Night event! Join us for a night of high fashion, sophisticated eats, murder, and the best board game on the market.
Dress as one of the six CLUE characters (Miss Scarlet, Mrs. White, Mrs. Peacock, Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard, or Professor Plum), or just get snazzy and act as a regular person lucky enough to NOT be suspected of murder. Indulge on some gourmet hors d’oeuvres, play the game CLUE, and (if we can get our hands on a copy) watch the 1985 movie classic. So dust off your lead pipes and revolvers and come ready to solve (or commit) the murder of our favorite enigmatic host, Mr. Body!

Book Club is currently reading a delightful book called I Capture the Castle, a coming of age story about an eccentric British family in the 1930’s who live in a ruined castle. So far we’ve had great fun discussing the characters’ romantic prospects, debating whether or not Stephen will lose an arm in a tragic farming accident (Josh Wood says Yes, the rest say No), and whether Simon’s beard is more Elizabethan or lumberjack in nature. Oh, the philosophical debates inspired by great literature! So provocative! So controversial!
Once we’ve finished the book, we will be watching the movie.
Here is a picture of the actor who plays Stephen, a “godlike youth” :

Going into a week of gratitude and thanks giving, we know that we have so much to be appreciative of. The community of Northfield has never stepped down from a challenge, and they have continually been willing to open both their minds and their hearts to the work around them that needs to be done to make this community a great place for EVERYONE. Never enough words exist to thank all those who give of their time, of their talents, and of their resources. THANK YOU so much to everyone who gave to the NUY during Give to the Max. We are so grateful to you all for believing in the power of youth voice and the creation of a caring community! ...
“Hello, my name is Haley Heiner. I am the Co-President of the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as 'The Key.' I have been attending there for a while now and I’ve honestly never felt more at home there. So many wonderful people have accepted me there and I’ve gained amazing new friendships. The Key has helped me through so much regarding mental health, social skills, financial problems, and more. Without The Key, I don’t know where I would be today, and so many youth could say the same. The Key is the longest-running youth-led and youth-empowering organization recorded in the United States and I want it to stay that way. So many kids, including me, need a safe space like The Key. I'm so grateful that I have a place like this, and I am beyond grateful that our community cares for this organization.”
