Hearts of Gold: For over ten years, clients from the Perkins Adult Services program have been celebrating the hopefulness of spring with a community service program. On Thursday, April 23, this year’s community project kept them closer to home but impacted many from the Clinton community. Twenty-three adult vocational clients and seven young women from our adolescent program teamed up to make a big difference in the cleanliness of town property. Chris, an adult client, said “community clean up is important as it shows respect for the community we live in and it is important that we set a good example.” Linda Alger, Program Director for Perkins Adult Services couldn’t be prouder of the hard work and cooperation that resulted in a noticeable facelift for the town property behind the Barlow building and other High Street businesses. “We spend a lot of time teaching people about being good citizens and contributing members of their community and this is their way of giving back to the community. They have hearts of gold and I couldn’t be more proud to be working beside them.” The group celebrated the morning of hard work with a barbeque.
