Youth Leader Attends National Conference
Cheryl L. Cutshall, McConnellsburg, recently attended Modern Woodmen of America's Merit Club Leadership Conference in Hershey. Cutshall was one of 433 youth service club leaders from across the United States who earned the opportunity to tak part in the conference. While in Hershey, she attended educational and motivational workshop sessions, networked with other club leaders and gained new ideas for leading volunteer activities for kids.
Cutshall, a club leader for seven years, qualified for the conference because her club completed a variety of projects in 2008. These projects focused on volunteerism, patriotism, education and fun.
"Volunteer service is a main focus of our clubs and our whole organization," says Modern Woodmen's Assistant Fraternal Director Keri Rursch. "People like Cheryl are living, breathing examples of the volunteer spirit in action. We invite them to this conference to honor and recognize their accomplishments."
Membership in a Modern Woodmen youth service club is just one of many fraternal benefits available to youth members. Youth service clubs started in 1942; more than 800 clubs serve children across the country.
