Rock dance to benefit STAR

May 01, 2013

Camden — Five Town Communities That Care will present Rock for STAR, a rock ‘n’ roll dance party to benefit the STAR after-school program. The chem-free, family-friendly event featuring the Midcoast's favorite rock band, Mid-Life Crisis, will be held Friday, May 10, at High Mountain Hall, 5 Mountain St./Route 52.

Doors will open 6:30 p.m. with dancing from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $10, with a maximum family rate of $30.

The STAR program is open to fifth through eighth graders in the towns of Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville and Rockport. It is the flagship program of Five Town Communities That Care, whose mission is to promote healthy youth and to prevent problem adolescent behaviors such as substance abuse, violence, delinquency, school dropout, teenage pregnancy and suicide.

STAR costs nothing for participants. The program seeks to provide opportunities for youth to learn skills that they can use in service to their community; to provide recognition for the contributions of young people; and to connect youth to other places where they can use their newly acquired skills. For the spring cycle of STAR, students will participate in one of the following classes: Knit Wits; Exploring Through the Arts; Hands On Science; Animal Antics; Aldermere Farm Hands; Martial Arts; Cooking; and Improvisational Drama.
