Northeast Kingdom Youth Services (NEKYS) was front and center when Lyndon State College (LSC) hosted its' second annual Community Day to provide first-year students a meaningful introduction and experience to community engagement and service. In addition to engaging in workshops, students participated in a community service project, as well as attending the Community Service Fair on Sept. 16.

NEKYS set up a booth at the fair to entice students to participate in NEKYS' eighth annual Shelter Walk and educate them about the opportunities for service at NEKYS. It was a great way to share information with students, faculty and staff.

LSC students set up a booth for NEKYS at the White Market in Lyndonville to promote the Shelter Walk. At the booth they sold colorful bracelets and lap top computer raffle tickets and promoted the development of teams from the community to participate in the Shelter Walk. The Walk takes place Saturday, Oct. 8 at the St. Johnsbury School and is for everyone in the community.

Those interested can form a team with classmates, co-workers, friends and family. It is a fun-filled day with breakfast snacks, a three-mile walk, a barbecue lunch, family friendly entertainment, prizes and a raffle. For more information call the NEKYS office at 748-8732.
