Lee County Care & Rehab wins first place in Wooly Worm Parade.
Lee County Care & Rehabilitation Center, with generous help from Youth Build of America, joined together to build an old-fashioned passenger train as their float entry into this year’s 2012 Wooly Worm Parade.
Youth Build of America is a program for young males and females, ages 16 to 24, to work full-time for up to 24 months toward their GEDs or high school diplomas while learning job skills by building affordable housing in their communities. Emphasis is placed on leadership development, community service, and the creation of a positive mini-community of adults and youth committed to each other’s success.
Lee County Care & Rehab residents took pride in riding on a first place float as they traveled down Main Street in Beattyville. LCCR would like to give a special thanks to Youth Build staff Melissa Eiserman, Mark Allshouse, Chris Spicer, Doyle Miller, and all the Youth Build students for their dedication to this tremendous project. Thanks also goes to LCCR volunteers and staff for dedicating so much time and effort.
