Summer Camps have begun at the Page Youth Center and the gym is alive with the sounds of bouncing balls, children playing  and a vibrancy that’s all about a newly refinished floor.

After 25 years, the Page Center (a home-away-from-home for thousands of kids) has been graced with one of the best gym floors in the greater Santa Barbara area.

Executive Director Bob Yost secured the workmanship of Pacific Floor Company to accomplish this feat.

“It meant that we had to close the doors for several weeks while the work was getting done," Yost said. "It was an impressive process to watch and we are so proud of the results.

"Thanks go to the Alice Tweed Tuohy Foundation for their significant support as well as Curvature and Mission Linen,
our first center-court sponsors," he said.

"Our great new Page Youth Center floor is just the beginning of what we hope will be a transformation of the center. We have several major projects on our lists that hopefully will be accomplished in the next year,” he said.

The Page Youth Center, 4540 Hollister Ave., is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that has been providing children in the greater Santa Barbara area with sports and activities since 1984.

The center also offers a scholarship program which makes certain that no child is ever denied the ability to participate.

More information about the Page Youth Center and its programs is available at

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
