Open for business? After-school program at Manomet Youth Center may be available starting Tuesday

Staff willing, the after-school drop off program at the Manomet Youth Center will be open for business on Tuesday, September 2.

That’s according to Anne Slusser, program supervisor for the Plymouth Recreation Department. However, getting open depends on having people to staff it, she said. If all goes well it will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday. Those hours will be maintained until the town decides how to go forward with the after-school program, Slusser said. In a later interview, Town Manager Melissa Arrighi was confident the program would be open for business, Tuesday.
