Organizers of Youth on Up are offering Callaway County teens a safe way to party this holiday season.

The group is hosting a New Year's Eve party from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. at the Callaway Electric Cooperative building in Fulton.

"We're catering to high school kids to keep them from having their own parties with alcohol and drugs," Youth on Up volunteer and event organizer Yolanda Smith said. "New Year's Eve is a time when a lot of kids get in accidents.

"We're just trying to get them to do positive things and see they can have fun without drinking and doing drugs."

Cost for the event is $2 per person or $3 per couple, and includes a night of music, dancing, games and supervised fun. Snacks and beverages also will be served.
