Woodbury First Selectman Gerald D. Stomski announced Monday that the Town of Woodbury has received a contribution from the Woodbury Lions Club in the amount of $3,000.00 to be utilized for the Youth Work Force Program.
Stomski initiated the program to provide area youth with paid summer jobs in the fields of plant and soil science, ecology, biology and geology. The student workers will be installing signage for a new bike trail, clearing and designating paths in the towns parks, working on town owned athletic facilities and working in the towns’ rivers and ponds.
The jobs are being paid through solicited contributions from civic groups, area businesses, citizens and through fund raisers, instead of tax dollars.
Every year the Woodbury Lions Club generously contributes thousands of dollars for scholarships, Fidelco seeing eye dogs, and for sight and hearing. The Lion Club is also responsible for the Main Street Luminaries at Christmas, the Woodbury Car Show, the Haunted Hayride and the Annual Duck Race.
Anyone wishing additional information or interested in making a donation towards the Youth Work Force Program may send checks or contact the First Selectman’s Office, 291 Main Street South, Woodbury, CT. 06798, or call (203) 263-2141, by email, email@example.com
