Applications due for youth government day
Teens have until Friday to apply to take part in Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center’s Youth in City Government Days next month.
The events are open to students in grades 10-12. Participants will tour fire departments and police departments, be matched with a department head or elected city official, and take an active role in a City Council meeting.
A youth in government day will be held in each city: Brooklyn Park’s will be on March 17 and Brooklyn Center’s on March 24. Participants must live in Brooklyn Park or Brooklyn Center and will be involved in the event in their city. Food and transportation are provided.

Church hires some muscle for fundraiser
Like many churches, sports teams and schools, Holy Nativity Lutheran Church in New Hope knows fundraising dollars are getting harder to come by. So when planning for this summer’s youth trips, it tag-teamed with some professional wrestlers.
At 6 p.m. Saturday, Holy Nativity will host the stars of Midwest Wrestling Entertainment. “This annual event is very unique for us,” said the Rev. Jason Wahlstrom. “When you think ‘church,’ you often don’t think ‘pro wrestling.’ It allows us to offer entertainment, instead of selling something or asking for another donation.”
Admission is $12 ($35 for a family of four or more); a $2 discount will be given with a canned-food donation to PRISM. Food and drink concessions will be available.
Holy Nativity is at 3900 Winnetka Av. N., New Hope.
