Southbridge, Massachusetts - Worcester Community Action Council, Inc. is preparing to celebrate the 'graduation' of more than 100 preschool students who will move on from the agency's Head Start program to attend Kindergarten in the Fall. 

Members of the Alpha Gamma Massachusetts State Chapter of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International recently visited the center to stuff back packs filled with school supplies - pencils, crayons, scissors, markers, folders and more - donated by the group to the agency.
