From big cities to small towns, there are places for kids to hangout and have fun. That place for our small town is known as Common Grounds. Several years ago this fun- filled hangout emerged in Saegertown, and from that day forward it’s been the place to go every Friday from 7-10 after the football games. After Saegertown’s homecoming game on Oct. 13, “Fifth Quarter” was extended from 10 to 11, and the time was filled with activities, good food, and all around positivity. At 9 p.m. was the usual “Nine at Nine” which is talking about bettering lives with religion and belief, and usually an inspirational speaker.
Located at 19473 Grotto Lane, Common Grounds is truly a special place. At the end of the evening, everyone gathered for a photo of all the smiling faces who attended that night. “It provides a little extra time to hang out with your friends after the football game,” said senior Bailey Kozalla. “It’s a great positive environment.”
