Youth help in community
A group of young people showed their community spirit last week.
The Siwell Road Church of Christ youth, visiting from Jackson on an in-state mission trip, and young people from the Holly Springs Church of Christ, conducted Vacation Bible School and got involved in several community projects.
The VBS, which focused on “Great Heroes of the Old Testament,” was a big success with good attendance each night, Sunday through Tuesday.
The young people staged a puppet show at The Nest, a daycare on West College Avenue; helped move furniture into refurbished elementary rooms at Marshall Academy; assisted with the moving-in process at the Marshall County Historical Museum; and did some yard work for the elderly.
Jane Hubbard, headmaster at Marshall Academy, hosted the young people at historic Finley Place on their last night in Holly Springs to show her appreciation for their help at MA. They enjoyed ice cream and cake. They also sang spiritual hymns to close out the uplifting three days together.
