CYC trio lend helping hands to art contest ... After next weekend’s showing, winning entries will be taken to the Grand Island Public Library, where they will be displayed during the month of December. Oswald can recall helping put up the display in the library last year. He said one woman watched him work for a time until she finally came over to him and told him that it was nice to see a young person doing something good for the community. He was pleased with the comment, not for himself, but for the Community Youth Council as a whole. He noted that whenever the CYC does a project, it shows the community’s adults that young people are capable of doing beneficial work. Of course, there was another reason to be happy to help put up the student art work. For an entire month, visitors to the library will be able to see a student art display that is interesting, creative and oftentimes beautiful.Grand Island Independent November 15, 2010
