•OUR COMMUNITY has received a grant to assist elderly, disabled, or low-income home owners with home exterior and yard projects. If you know of anyone who needs help because they lack the ability or the funds, Mrs. Breth has the applications. ALSO - students needing community service for your resume, this would be a GREAT opportunity. The program needs volunteers who are willing to paint, mow, prune, rake, etc. on April 21 or 22. See Mrs. Breth for more information. You can work an hour or two or all day.
•JUNIORS interested in law enforcement will have the opportunity this summer to see what law enforcement training and careers are like through the Cadet Law Enforcement Academy program, which is hosted by the Highway Patrol and sponsored by the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary. Cadet Law will be held from June 10-June 15 in Salina. In order for a student to be eligible to attend Cadet Law, students must be in the summer between their Junior and Senior years of high school and have a "C+" academic average. Students must be deemed medically fit to participate in all activities. Students will need to fill out an application to attend, including writing a brief essay on why they would like to participate in the program. Applications are due by March 31, 2018. Contact the American Legion at (785) 232-9315 for an application and further information. There is no cost to the cadet, but there is a $300 sponsorship fee by the local American Legion Post or American Legion Auxiliary Post. Lodging, food, and uniform are provided for the week. http://www.ksamlegion.org/page/content/programs/cadet-law-enforcement-academy
