Off to a Super Start!
Fit for Life 2019 is off to a great start! The Westfield site lead by Jenny Young with staff, Kailee Clymer, and Chloe Reifer hosted a Super Heroes themed week where kids designed their own costumes. The Fit for Life program is in four sites this year. In addition to Westfield, kids in Knoxville, Elkland, and Lawrenceville will get to take part in the summer fun and education.
Emma Poirier is lead with
Lyssi Yungwirth at the Knoxville Community Center site.
Lauren Singer is lead staff with
Alaina Goetsch at the new Jerome Park Pavilion Elkland site, and recent Youth Leadership 2.0 graduate,
Stephon Folk is lead at the Lawrenceville site with recreation staffers,
Dani Hunt and
Holden Kennedy. They are graciously given space to use for this program inside the Calvary United Methodist Church Community Center. Planning know-how, organizational skills, and high energy is needed to do this job, not to mention the obvious weight of being a responsible supervisor for the 10-15 busy kids who will visit each site, each day. We are very proud of these young adults and the quality of programming they offer to kids in underserved areas of our county. With their help, this is one way the Partnership can affect positive change in the lives of kids in our rural county. Thank you to all recreation staff for their excellent work and to the funders of Fit For Life 2019, Shell Appalachia and Tioga County Dept. of Human Services/SAM, Inc.
