Youth continue charitable works
A group of teenagers at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church participated in a work mission this summer in North Carolina, but their return to a familiar locale hasn't dimmed their enthusiasm for volunteer work.
Mission organizer Phyllis Welsh reported this week of what they've been up to in the last several months.
In September the teenagers and their adult mentors collected and delivered back-to-school clothes for distribution to the local needy by North Country Ministry. During October, the teens observed Make a Difference Day and over twenty youth and adults performed yard and landscape cleanup for various local residents, including the elderly and homebound.
One crew went to Thurman and assisted a resident picking up shingles from around his home. Ten youth also helped the Lang family clean up their yard.
The "Youth on a Mission" group will be collecting gift certificates for Wait House as their Christmas project. On Saturday Dec. 4 they they will be selling soup and hot beverages at a church holiday bazaar to coincide with the Christmas in Warrensburgh fest. The funds from these sales will go toward their 2011 Mission trip to Pittsburgh.
