Kids perform community service on Centerville Square

The Daily Iowegian

---- — On Nov. 2, junior high and high school youths in the pre-confirmation and confirmation classes at St. Mary’s Catholic Church helped string lights for the synchronized display on the courthouse lawn. This is the second year that St. Mary’s youths were among the volunteers working on this project. JoAnn McLin, confirmation coordinator, incorporates community service, as well as service to the Church and the needy, into the Christian service hours required for confirmation.
