With the summer coming to close and along with it, the 24 hrs of service program. A group of us head off to Darien Lake to enjoy the free day that we earned.
The weekend of September 11 prove to be quite a hectic one. First the CYC team headed out to Olean to help remodel the Extreme Youth Center. After some heavy lifting and painting, the team headed over to join forces with Bona Responds. Together we packed 100,000 meals for the Haiti Earth quake victims.

Supplied with some paint, spare hedge trimmers, and a bunch of energetic youngsters, CYC helped give a cosmetic lift to the Evangola Park. But not to worry, we had plenty of time to relax on Sunday! It was a beautiful weekend to be out on the beach. Thank you to everyone that was involved in this project.
On June 18th CYC headed out once again, this time to the Buffalo Botanical Gardens. We had two teams working hard. The first team did the 1900's glass dome painting. The second, was working in the South Park doing tree removal. It proved to be a busy day and the volunteers were great! All the hours went towards the "24 hours of Service" a partner Program of CYC and Darien Lake to encourage Volunteering and community involvement.
What did you accomplish with your family on Mothers Day?
About 70+ volunteers decided to face freezing temps and 40-60 mph winds to make a statement to KEEP ASP Quaker Area OPEN! Too many times we get upset that someone is closing a park and we stand aside and let it happen. On Mothers day a few mothers cared enough for their family and joined others to volunteer and impact a few cabins, but more importantly they impacted their children's lives to not just tell them Yes it is a good thing for you to volunteer... but instead they put their words into action! serving along side their family they cared enough to face cold and wet and even the late night "Bear Hunt"
All in all everyone who came out may have gotten wet feet and cold noses and toes but everyone had a great time serving together. The weather proved to not be nearly as bad as it was forecast. With BonaResponds joining in, we've had some great opportunity to impact the Allegany State Park and make a statement that we are willing to do more than complain about the closing of our state Park, we will do something and impact the need.
Also, CYC has determined to make an impact in the big need by supplementing the collected crutches with 1-2 hundred emergency crutches. Companies such as Home Depot, FXI Foam Products, and The Gorilla Glue Co. have donated materials for us to greatly assist BonaResponds in making a true impact in the need on the ground in Haiti.
Lots of work for CKC-age kids to help sand and tape, making a difference for earthquake victims in Haiti:

On February 20th, members of CYC staff and Give a Day, Get a Disney Day volunteers headed down to the Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo to help out with some brush and trail cleanup. We got much accomplished, chopping up debris and removing it from trails to help the preserve get ready for a season of serving the people of the Greater Buffalo Area. The CYC staff would like to extend a hearty Thank-You! to all who participated. In addition, here is an article we received from two of the volunteers.
"My mom and I had so much fun on February 20th, 2010, participating in a volunteer opportunity with the Christian Youth Corps at Tifft Nature preserve for 'Give a Day, Get a Disney Day'. The group leaders were very inspiring and informative to all participants. Everyone worked together very hard cutting trees and picking up brush. We learned how to cut trees and how important it is to make space for new tree growth. The trees provide food and shelter for many birds and animals. Tifft Nature Preserve is a great place for people to hike, cross-country ski, and to enjoy nature. A treasure to be cared for so future generations may find their happy place!"
Thanks for the experience,
Abbagail and Debbie Augustyn
