Youth for the Community Committee (YCC) members unanimously resolved to contact Serving On The Streets (S.O.S.) to offer aid in the organization's efforts to assist those affected by the recent tornado in Henryville, Ind.

During the bi-monthly YCC meeting Wednesday afternoon, club sponsor Rochell Reberger said she'd like to see all the clubs at Northview High School involved in a challenge to raise as much money and supplies for the victims as possible.

YCC Vice President Alexa Dispennett made the motion, with Senator Taylor Dickison (District 3: Southeastern Brazil and a portion of Southwestern Brazil) giving the second.

YCC President Matthew Aselage said he would take the initiative to contact S.O.S. to inquire if the organization had any immediate needs or requests.

Club members also discussed the possibility of requestion the use of the park from park officials to host a local raffle fundraiser.

The YCC will reconvene for a special meeting Monday, March 12, at 3:30 p.m., to discuss the service project in greater detail after it has spoken with S.O.S.

Meanwhile, Reberger conducted two additional swearing-in ceremonies for leaders who couldn't attend the YCC's official inauguration.

YCC Senator Taylor Dickison (District 3) and Representative for the 18-20-year-old age group Brandon Rost recited the club's official oaths of office, respective to their positions.

"We need to figure out a way to work to become representative of our group," Reberger said. "People in the community need to know, if you are an 18-20-year-old in the community and you have an issue or a question, that they should come contact Brandon Rost. I don't know how to get that out there, but we need to find a way to do it."

The YCC has three remaining leaders who still need to take oath. The leaders include Senator Chandler Damon (District 4: Northern Harmony), Senator Miranda Ault (District 1: Northern Brazil and Carbon) and Representative for the 13-14-year-old age group Roxxii Maxwell.
