College Applications and Community Service. What's the Connection?

As the percentage of high school graduates who attend colleges and universities increases each year the competition for acceptance into these institutions also increases.  The time to begin distinguishing yourself from thousands of other applicants is now!  Why not include community service on your application?  Community service is an effective account of your dedication to life-long learning, improving yourself and that of the area in which you live.  It enhances your desirability as an applicant by - not passively - but ACTIVELY demonstrating your commitment to succeed.

Thank you for joining us at the library for a fabulous after-school family program with the Fragile Planet Wildlife Center. Tyler and Nick brought five exciting wild friends and spoke about each of the animals for about an hour. What a fun way to learn so much!

Bruce Dana joined us with his wonderful and generous photography talents, so be sure to grab a copy of North Country Now's next issue!

Canal Schooner Lois McClure Visit was a Wonderful Success

The village was all-a-buzz Monday with excitement over the visit of the Lois McClure.  It was wonderfully interesting and I was thrilled to learn that MCS brought many students down throughout the day.  Thank you to Tom Clements of River Watch Marina for arranging such a great program for all of us to enjoy, and a special shout-out to our dear friend Mary Ann Evans for delivering a huge kettle of homemade soup to the crew.  Welcome to Morristown and please come again soon!
