"Change can be a good thing!"
~ Thanksgiving and Holiday Message ~
Vanessa McQueen-Silas G.M.
As we go about our daily lifestyles, it is natural to seek "better." Better opportunities at work, in our neighborhoods, for a cleaner environment, to create business partners & friends and yes, for places to be entertained can necessitate periodic changes.
This past year, SMG, Austin Rosewood Community Development Corporation, City of Austin Officials and Management along with the Citizens of Austin worked cooperatively to identify a plan for change at the Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex.
The "Changes" are designed to support the majority of ideas to make the Millennium the more affordable, safe, free from crime, gangs and drugs and fun place to seek youth, family and adult entertainment.
Specifically, the change over the next several years will include the addition of live music festivals and entertainers, youth bowling/skate or dance summer camps, adult music events, corporate fun days and holiday parties. The most exciting change is the inclusion of educational information seminars and workshops on health and safety awareness for families and monthly planned recreational and group activities to support a healthy lifestyle. Bowling and skating theme night specials for college students, government employees and teenagers will be additions to the activity specials offered.
I invite you to visit the MYEC during now through the first of January. We offer the facility's Winter Wonderland festivities of over 1 million lights and 15 holiday trees decorated in over 55,000 square feet of family fun entertainment space. It is our "gift" to you. Bring your family in to view this spectacular display of decorations. Take photos' in front of the tree, have lunch and bowl, skate or go to the movies. Santa's helpers are here skating and bowling and listening to young children's wishes. Check out our calendar of events to plan the activities that fit into your schedule. We make it easy.
At this time, I want to thank you all for being responsible parents and choosing the MYEC for your family entertainment. We are pleased and honored to have served Austin youth and families for 15 years and trust you will be included in the exciting lineup of MYEC changes to better serve Austin's entertainment needs.
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Holidays and
Happy New Year!
