Join the Lincoln Area YMCA for a fun-filled New Year's Eve party with a trip to the 24th annual East Peoria Festival of Lights.

After they return to Lincoln, the fun will continue with games and other activities at the Y Activity Center, 719 Wyatt Ave. This event is from 4 p.m. to midnight. Space is limited! Sign up now to avoid any waiting lists. Call for more information on this exciting event.

The YMCA Cheerleading program gives girls the opportunity to cheer throughout the year. They meet once a week to practice their cheers and work on their cheer techniques. The girls then perform at local games and community events. The Y has two performances planned at LCHS basketball games for the month of January. The Y will also be starting up a Competitive Cheerleading program for girls in sixth through 12th grade. Contact the Y for more information. Register your daughter soon so she may start in January and be part of this "cheertastic" fun.

Tie-Dye T-Shirt Art will be on Jan. 19, 9:30-11 a.m., at the Y Activity Center. Lisa Madigan will instruct first- through sixth-grade children about "the magic of color," and they will design a tie-dye T-shirt during class. Children should dress in old clothes and must bring a white T-shirt to class for the project! Class fee increases $3 after Jan. 12.
