All About the PYO…

The PYO is a great way for kids and teens on the island to give back to the Island community, socialize with old friends, make new friends and work together to raise funds for trips and new activities. The PYO sponsors Tuesday night Game Night, Wednesday night Movie night, holds an annual craft fair and sells food in the snack shack to raise money. We are always looking for new PYO members and invite all kids to join by stopping by one of our meetings held at the PIA on Wedsdays at 6:30 PM starting June 23rd

Because our PYO members technically age out when they turn 18, we are always in need of new members. Not only does becoming a member look fantastic on a college application or resume, but you get to come with us on some awesome trips!


Tuesday Night is Game Night from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM starting June 22nd. Game night is a great way to stay active, hang out with friends and meet new people for kids and adults alike. Starting June 22nd, we will play kids bingo at 7:00 PM for prizes! Kids Bingo is free, but you must be under 18 yrs old to play. Prizes include toys, snack shack coupons and a mystery prize. The PYO is looking for donated prizes for this season. They can be dropped off on Friday nights during Bingo.  Join us ice cream treats available from 6:45 PM to 8 PM, SUNDAES are BACK this year due to COVID restrictions we will add the toppings you choose. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Come join us and plan some events for this season. Chaperones are needed. They don’t have to do anything but be on the property. Bring a book or a laptop and use the wireless internet. We fund our events by running the Make-Your-Own Sundaes on Tuesday and Snack Shack on Wednesday movie night and Friday BINGO. We have a schedule to make sure the shack has workers. PYO Workers have their event admissions paid for by the PYO. If you don’t work you can still come with us, but you must pay your way.

Reminder of the RULES when attending PIA and PYO events:

  • No swearing on PIA grounds. The offender receives one warning. If caught swearing again, he or she will not be allowed back on the PIA property for 1 week.
  • There is no littering on PIA grounds. At PYO events 1 child will be designated the *Trash Police*. It will be their responsibility to make sure that all of the trash is being placed in the proper receptacles. Anyone refusing to use the trash can or giving the trash officer a hard time will be asked to leave for the remainder of the event. Also, there will no longer be any gum sold at the snack shack. It was found repeatedly on the basketball court and cement patio outside the hall.
  • No one under the age of 16 will be allowed on PIA property past 10 o’clock (unless there is a PIA function taking place or they have adult supervision).
  • Stay off the roof. This won’t be tolerated. Anyone found on the roof will be charged with trespassing.

PYO Ski Trip 2020

This was my first year with the PIA as well as going on the ski trip, And the experience was amazing. I had so much fun and got closer to so many of the other teens and kids.

This year’s ski trip was at Gunstock Mountain in New Hampshire which was an amazing place to start off as a beginner. We did a day of skiing and went tubing as well as just hanging at the house playing games and watching movies. The food was amazing and everyone got along really well, especially since I wasn’t really close with many people going into the trip. But by the end of the trip we all really opened up. I would love to go there again. I really had an amazing time. I miss everyone already, and I can’t wait to go back to the PIA this summer!
