KANSAS CITY CLUB KC MAYOR'S NIGHTS HOPE TO PREVENT FLASH MOB VIOLENCE!!!
Once again Kansas City hopes pizza parties and dance music will solve a longstanding local entertainment district problem . . .
Mayor James invites youth to join him for Club KC Kick Off
This Friday marks the kick off of Club KC, a free event designed to provide local youth with fun and safe summer activities. Club KC features dancing and video games and will be hosted at six Kansas City community centers throughout the summer. The Mayor will be on hand at Brush Creek Community Center this Friday to start Club KC festivities at 7 pm. Club KC ends at midnight, at which time the City’s curfew ordinance will be in effect. This summer will feature expanded activities, thanks to partnerships with the Boys and Girls Club, Kansas City Public Library, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, and ArtsTechKC.
Additionally, Mayor’s Nights are athletic-centered activities including Night Kicks (soccer), Night Hoops (basketball) and Night Nets (volleyball). Last year, attendance numbers for Club KC and Mayor’s Nights hit the 12,000 mark after 12 weeks. For details on dates, times, and locations of events throughout the summer, and to register online, visit www.kcmayor.org/mayorsnights.
And while the project is great for warm fuzzies . . . Let's remember that Mayor Sly had limited success with this effort last year and the curfew crackdown on the Plaza remains a constant source of trouble.
