Wow....I am so proud of the students who started the SAS club and those that have joined the membership. It is a big step to recognize a need but an even bigger step to put the time, effort and commitment into setting a goal, making a plan and recruiting others. I applaud their caring and generous efforts. We, the community, should mark our calendars to support their Valentine's Day event (Feb 9 from 4-8:30 at the Sycamore Community Clubhouse) and make an effort to be there to show our appreciation for SAS club caring spirit and valuable cause.

It is so nice to read stories about young people in this community thinking of others less fortunate. It's so easy to just look away. I am so proud of these students and I will be at their fundraiser on Feb. 9th. Your parents must be very proud.

"I feel like the whole community sometimes gets overlooked," Patrick said. "I feel like there's literally no charities that help out with our own area."

I really like the fact that this student realizes the importance of helping members of his own community. Congratulations for taking the charge on this!

Wow, so young and look at what they are doing. These four boys will make a difference. I can't wait to see what they will continue to do as they grow older.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
