By Zina Willard

Steve Acerson,a former Green River resident and 39 young women and leaders from the Elk Ridge Stake in Utah County and 23 Outward Bound Youth and leaders from various cities came to Green River on July 10. Coordinators from these groups contacted Joni Pace, Executive Director of the Community Center/Boys and Girls Club of Green River and asked if she had Service Projects that they could help with. Pace said that she is grateful for groups like these and the service that they perform for the city.

The Community Center/Boys and Girls Club has 43 youth registered in a Summer Camp Program (School of Rock) and part of the curriculum is that the youth learn about and perform service for their community. Traditionally Fridays are "Service Days" coupled with "Water Fun", where Emery County Fire Chief, Howard Burnett supplies water and ice cream for the youth after a hot day of service, however this Friday will be spent at the wave pool in Price so "Service Day' was moved to Thursday.

AmeriCorps* NCCC Team "Green 2" has been helping with the summer camp program. The "Ladies from Elk Ridge Stake", 23 Outward Bound from all across the country, nine AmeriCorps* Members and the kids from the School of Rock" were one big team today and pulled weeds, bagged garbage and cleaned up, Main Street by the Medical Center and Broadway. Pace and her staff want to say thank you to these hard working Groups and their organizations for including this city and their youth in the wonderful things that they do.
