When Cora Putnam Hale established the Social Center, she specifically requested that the youth of the community not be left out. For that reason, a primary objective of the Social Center is to designate certain hours for teens only.


Our Teen Rec Program also includes events, activities and trips.

Upcoming activities can be found on the calendar page and facebook page. 

Tuesday, August 30th
ESC will host an Open House for all 6th graders and their families to register for our Teen Recreation Program.
Tours will be provided, as well food and activities for families after teens have registered.
Open House will run from 6:30PM until 8:30PM.
Any questions, please contact us at 518.873.6408

The Social Center is tremendously grateful to


for supporting our Teen Rec Program!

"It may be well to make special notice of young people, the Center is for them.

Of course, not for the youth alone, but under no circumstances should young people be 'crowded out' by adult activities.

Our boys and girls will be the citizens of tomorrow. If the Center will help to make better citizens of tomorrow as well as today,

one of its purposes will be fulfilled."
