The Amity Teen Center wishes everyone a Happy New Year and urges everyone to make it their News Year's resolution to participate in ATC events and community service activities.

This past month the ATC participated in Toys for Tots and made two Holiday baskets for Woodbridge Human Services.

We would like to thank the major sponsors of the Chilly Chili Run, especially New Alliance Foundation, the main sponsor of our Race this year.

The other major sponsors this year were Vine Products, People's Bank, Greenberg, Rhein & Margolis, TD Banknorth & H. Pearce Co., Realtors. We really appreciate their support.

Check out the upcoming Band nights on Friday, Jan. 12 and 26 to start off your weekends with enjoyable live music and more, from 7 to 10:30 p.m.

Join us on Friday, Jan. 19, 7 to 10:30 p.m., for an open mike night sponsored by the Guitar Club.

Whether you would like to perform or not, it should really be a great time!

The 12th Annual Toad's Benefit featuring, seven of Amity's own bands, is scheduled to take place on Monday, Feb. 19 from 6 p.m. to midnight. Kick off your

February vacation with this awesome event and come support your fellow musicians of Amity.
