Thank You STAR Volunteers!

The Youth Services Summer Reading Program was a huge success this year, thanks to the 58 teens who volunteered this summer. Together, they worked over 1,200 hours in 8 weeks!

The STAR Volunteer party was Wednesday, August 13th in the Baxter Room. Everyone enjoyed eating pizza and other snacks and many volunteers competed in Guitar Hero, Wii sports, and DDR for prizes.
