ts mission focuses solely on helping the youth of the community, says Caleb Lovelace, outgoing president of the Jennings County Youth for Development (JCYD).
"It feels good to help the kids," Lovelace said after the four-year-old group presented its annual grants recently. "That's why we are all involved with this. It is very gratifying to see the funds we worked to raise going to such good causes."
JCYD, which is made up of Jennings County High School students and operates under the umbrella of the Jennings County Community Foundation, raised money through the 2017-18 school year and gave $877.82 to the Jennings County Council on Domestic Violence for children's playground and sports equipment at its shelter, and $372.18 to the Extension Service for the Reading Made Fun program at is annual grant presentation on June 27.
"We not only met our fund-raising goal, we exceeded it by a couple of hundred dollars," said Lovelace, whose term with JCYD has now ended. "Another goal is to grow every year, and I think we have this group positioned to do that."
Sally Wood of the Council on Domestic Violence voiced praise for the group.
"It's great to see our youth working to help other kids like this," she said. "This grant will help us a lot. The playground and sports equipment we'll buy with this grant will make it more comfortable for the kids who sometimes stay at the shelter with their mothers."

Editor's Notebook

'We draw strength from each other'

For around 15 years, a group of over a dozen people from Jennings and Decatur counties have gathered every Wednesday morning.
Every week they meet religiously - a pun that seems most appropriate - for prayer, fellowship and breakfast. Absenteeism is virtually nil for the Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club.
"It is a group like no other I've ever been associated with," said Ruth Ann Horstman of North Vernon. "We all look forward to Wednesdays and a visit with our friends."

Meet the new K9 on the block
North Vernon Police Department K9 Officer Shane Trepanier, left, and Police Chief James Webster introduce NVPD's new K9, Zobi, at the North Vernon City Council meeting last week. Since completing his training and joining the police department full time last month, Zobi has been instrumental in numerous cases, according to Webster. "We're very glad to have a K9 back on our force again," he said. NVPD's previous K9, Heros, retired last February after over seven years of duty.-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
