All things Youngtown were celebrated yesterday as the City of Launceston council's ABCDE Learning Site program prepared to shift its focus to Kings Meadows.
Now in its fifth year, the council initiative aims to support communities to reach their full potential.

To mark the conclusion of the program at Youngtown, school students created a short film to help celebrate their suburb.
Titled "Dear Youngtown, a letter to our community", the film premiered at the South Launceston Football Club for an audience of more than 50 community residents.
The short film was shot over three days by Youngtown Primary School students, who shared their favourite things about their school and the community they live in.
The program had previously spent 12 months in the suburbs of Rocherlea, Ravenswood and Mowbray.
The Youngtown Learning Site resulted in a range of community projects and included historical research into South Launceston Football Club memorabilia, new women's workshops, new signage at Franklin Village, the establishment of a Launceston Tool Library, and new community noticeboards.
Launceston Mayor Albert van Zetten said the Youngtown community had been enthusiastic supporters of the initiative, and he hoped the program would also be able to make a positive difference in Kings Meadows.
"The learning site program is an opportunity for communities to tell us what they love about where they live, what their suburb's strengths are, and what opportunities lie ahead," Cr van Zetten said.
