Members of the Youth for the Community Committee (YCC) proposed a community event to help raise funds for Serving on the Streets (S.O.S.) and presented two possible amendments to their group's constitution.

During the group's bi-weekly meeting Wednesday afternoon, YCC President Matthew Aselage proposed the group investigate an annual parade, with proceeds from the event going to benefit the S.O.S.

"A planning group will be in charge of every decision pertaining to this event," Aselage said. "Every year, a community events planning group must decide where the funds raised from the event will go."

Club sponsor Rochelle Reberger told committee members there would be a great deal of responsibility required to carry the event out.

"You guys would be undertaking quite a bit of work to get this going," Reberger said. "You'd have to communicate with city officials from many different places to coordinate everything and make sure it goes smoothly."

No vote was taken during the meeting, and no decision has currently been made.

Aselage said a vote will be taken during the group's next official meeting.

In addition, the group discussed the possible adoption of two new amendments to their constitution.

The first amendment considered focused on creating more official and precise language regarding YCC leader term limits to promote a more efficient and defined election process.

"It will just help everything run more smoothly when we have elections next time," Aselage said.

Meanwhile, the second proposed amendment aims to create another executive position within the legislative congressional body -- a Secretary of Congress position.

The person given the title would serve as the sole organizer for the group's events and would be in charge of delegating who completes what necessary tasks involved in planning future community-related events.

Votes on the aforementioned items will be taken during the next official YCC meeting.

The group's next meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 7, at 3:20 p.m., at Northview High School in Reberger's classroom, room 108.
