Helping hands

July 23, 2012

Thirty-one young people are  helping out at Catawba County Library this summer as part of a cooperative effort between the library system and Catawba County Schools.

The students represented all five high schools in the Catawba County system as well as Arndt and River Bend middle schools to gain valuable work experience. The high school volunteers were able to accumulate community service credit for their school transcript.

To read more of this story, pick up the Tuesday print edition of Catawba County's community newspaper, The Observer News Enterprise, at newsstands throughout the county.

I bet there is some kid in China fast Fingering his abacus and doing Noocler Fisics all summer while our jewels are "earning Community Service" credits.

Soundfs to me like youth indoctrination into all things Governmental as our Commie society is heading. Oh we jaust can't get by without some aspect of involvemetn from the Government!
