Assets In Action: Programs that shape the community

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

 As we look at the category of positive values his month, I thought we could talk about the programs and experiences that help to shape our youth.
Let’s start with the Girl Scouts and their cookie sales that should be wrapping up soon. The Girl Scout program is helping to shape the women of the future through community service and leadership to build courage, confidence and character.
Make sure to stop by your local Smith’s and even on the corner by Warm Heart Yarn, in White Rock. If you don’t want to buy a box for yourself, support the troops, donate a box or two to the firehouse or the police station.
The Naval Jr. ROTC Unit from Los Alamos High School, as well as the baseball team, are both having pasta dinner fundraisers on Thursday night. The JROTC unit will have its at the IMH Catholic Church and the baseball team at the Elks Lodge. Both fundraisers begin at 5:30 p.m.
Their fundraisers offset the cost of travel, hotel stays, entry fees and awards. The programs build character, endurance and a sense of family for their members. The events are even similar in price, just $10.
The Empty Bowls project on Saturday is a program that provides the basic necessities for youth and their families. An added bonus is the fact that many youth of the community have donated time to make the bowls.
