Youth Advisory Council
We are looking to revitalize the Indian Shores' Youth Advisory Council (YAC), a governmental organization made up of local high school students, who would be dedicated to helping the Indian Shores community and advising the Town Council on matters pertaining to young people.
Being a part of this organization would be great for college applications, would count toward volunteer hours and is an excellent way to get involved with your local government.
If you or anyone you know is interested in joining the Youth Advisory Council, please contact Councilor Mike Hackerson at (727) 492-3882 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday Morning Market
Come visit the Indian Shores Sunday morning market this Sunday from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Municipal Center. It's free and open to the public.
