Jeanie Jones Staff Writer Chester kids in junior high school have a new group to have fun with, while at the same time they 'help make their community and the world a better place. The new group is Rotary Youth Act, a program for sev- enth and eighth graders who would like to become mem- bers of Interact Club when they get to high school. "It's a way to get better involved with our communi- ty," said Rotary Youth Act president Morgan Strate. "For me, it is a way to bet- ter understand what Rotary and Interact do for the com- munity," said vice president Faith Syfrett. "This year as part of Youth Act, we assisted Rotary with the delivery of the phone books, and helped with the major appliance cleanup," said Strate. "We went to the elemen- tary school and helped get donations for Purple Pinkie Day, which is a Rotary pro- gram to help eradicate polio," said Syfrett. The girls explained that for each dollar donated, the child would receive a dyed pinkie. "The reason for that is, that in Africa, the chil- dren who received the polio vaccine would get their pinkie dyed as proof of the shot," said Syfrett. "Every dollar earned pro- vides a polio vaccine for two children," said Strate. "Some kids brought in ten dollars so they could get all their fin- gers dyed." The young ladies explained that even thought this was the first year for the Youth Act group, there was a tremendous response with almost 20 members. "I joined to get a jump- start on my community serv- ice," Syfrett said. "It's a good program and has taught me lessons about how the com- munity works - I never knew Young Chester Rotarians Faith Syfrett and Morgan Strate work for a better community through service above self in the Rotary Youth Act Club.

"It's a good way to get out, get to know people and help out- it made me feel good knowing that I was out helping others." "We both look forward to being a part of Interact next year," said Syfrett. "Being a part of Rotary Youth Act is hard work," both young ladies agreed. "But the rewards are well worth the tasks." i t Quincy kid Emily Chambers says her favorite thing to do in the summer is laying with her fiends at Pioneer Park. Photo by Traci Bue .d :: ....
