GaGa Ball Tournament

The GaGa Ball Tournament is a way to have a fun, substance-free time during the cold winters. The 2017 Tournament will be held on Saturday, February 11 from 2-5 p.m. at Beach Middle School. Youth in grades 5-8 are welcome to play – and it’s free! The first place winners in each grade get a prize! To participate, students must have a signed waiver from their parents.

SRSLY Cinema

In conjunction with Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights in downtown Chelsea, SRSLY offers free outdoor movies starting at dusk during the summer. SRSLY public service announcements are shown before each movie, along with recognition of our sponsors. Movies are projected onto a screen on the back of the McKinley building behind the Clocktower Complex. Lawn seating is available (blankets or chairs are recommended). Popcorn and concessions are sold under the gazebo. Youth and adult volunteers are needed for many jobs, including set-up, popcorn sales, crowd supervision, and clean up.

New Year's Eve 2012 030

New Year’s Eve Party

This is a great way for families to celebrate together in a fun environment that promotes healthy, non-destructive decisions. The SRSLY New Year’s Eve Party contradicts the conventional wisdom that this holiday can’t be celebrated without alcohol. With support from local businesses and service clubs, this free event features fun activities for kids and adults of all ages. Local youth bands entertain party-goers with live music, while kids enjoy arts and crafts, video games, cookie decorating, or sports in the gym. Everyone looks forward to sampling entries in the chili cook-off, and the team games and prizes.

St. Patrick’s Day Party

Another opportunity to prove that we don’t need alcohol to have fun on this holiday: the SRSLY St. Patrick’s Day Party! This event is a more laid back, less structured party than New Year’s Eve. Aimed at teens and “tweens,” we provide a fun, cool place to hang out with friends, listen to music, and compete to see who can wear the most green.

Fall Kick-Off Rally

SRSLY members set up tents and tables at one of the first Chelsea High School Varsity Football home games of the season. Banners hung on Main St. on game day let people know to look for us that night. At the game, youth and adult volunteers pass out green glow bracelets, SRSLY temporary tattoos, and information about our coalition to everyone in attendance. After a short half-time announcement, youth members throw our signature green t-shirts into the stands.

Volunteer Appreciation Party

This is our time to say thanks to everyone who helped out over the course of the year. An award ceremony recognizes individuals for their contributions. The rest of the event is just a chance to eat, relax, and have fun with fellow coalition members.

Youth-Only Meeting

The SRSLY Youth-Only Meeting is a chance for kids to have their say. This 90-minute evening meeting is open to all 5th – 12th grade students and home-schooled youth. Youth Steering Committee members help by facilitating small group discussions. Each year’s meeting has a slightly different theme related to the SRSLY mission. Input and ideas generated at the Youth-Only Meeting are used to adjust and improve SRSLY yearly action plans.
