Viki Chavez, a student at Manatee Elementary School, claps for silence before the start of a movie shown during a pre-Labor Day pajama party Friday. The party, which included art, games and munchies, was part of the Marco Island YMCA’s Aspire program, an outreach program that embraces children from area schools as well as those on Marco Island. Executive Director of the YMCA, Cindy Love, said the program has three main goals, the three Rs, which stand for respect, responsibility and being a good role model. On Chavez’s left is her friend Arianna Rivera.
