North Star Wyldlife concluded its third full year with a $750 donation from the Christmas luminaria project, divided between the North Star Youth Outreach, the Boswell Food Pantry and the Zach Leitenberger Fund.
Wyldlife, a nonschool sponsored organization, is open to all 6th through 8th graders who reside within the North Star School District, and is poised to kick off the fourth year with a Wyldlife Club from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the North Star Youth Outreach Building, 231 Center St.
In addition to monthly "clubs," members will once again volunteer at Camp PARC's Laps of Light Oct. 7, participate in the 4th annual hayride, have the opportunity to join the third year of the North Star Wyldlife Ski Club, and to plant tree saplings on Earth Day, based upon Genesis 2:15.
As part of the Pennsylvania Game Commission Reforestation Project, Mike Mauer, Boswell Lions Club president, has committed to the ongoing instruction of members regarding the nearly 200 tree saplings that the students planted last April.
Also, all Wyldlife participants have the opportunity to attend WyldlifeCamp in the summer of 2013. This past July, 11 boys and girls traveled with Chris McCune, Somerset Young Life area director, and Colleen Tretter to NorthBay, Md. for a week of camp.
