Signs of success
It's the season where high school and college graduates are readying for their big days and journeys into the future. As graduations are planned in school districts across the region, seniors are being honored in many ways for their hard work.
That includes many signs of support popping up on lawns with posters, photos, handwritten notes and other shows of support. Teachers in the area are also getting some signs to honor them for all their hard work as well.
Garden club earns grant
A youth garden project under the watchful eye of the Derry Garden Club is getting a boost thanks to a grant. The club won a grant through Ames Tools of Iowa and National Garden Clubs Inc., to help support the vegetable garden now growing at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Derry. The garden project has been a teaching tool for youth at the club for about 11 years. Children learn about gardening, harvesting and cooking their final products. Derry's club is one of only two garden clubs in the state to earn the honor.
Enjoying the ride
It's that time of year when drivers in the region can't help but spot an occasional perky pup peeking from a car window safely while enjoying the breeze and scenery. Dogs are being seen everywhere these days, poking their heads out as their owners driving around towns.
Churches in the area are taking time to consider how to worship safely in person with COVID-19 numbers improving. Many guidelines remain in place for churches when it comes to singing in public, but many are taking to the warmer weather and offering services outside. Parishioners in Chester were spotted enjoying a Sunday morning service.
