A 4-H’er for life

Service, to Sarah Gregory, is more than offering a few hours of her time here and there – it’s more like a way of life.

9/11 – A day of service, remembrance for the community

Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, was a beautiful, sunny day, just like that fateful Tuesday 10 years earlier. This year, fortunately, the day did not end in shock, sorrow, loss, and devastation. Churches and civic groups around the country, including Chester United Methodist Church (CUMC), encouraged their members to join them for a day of service and remembrance.
