The Good News

"Hometown Hero" Honored

Rural Action congratulates Jeff Ross, leader of the Junior Order of Eagles (JOE) in Glouster, for being selected as a “Hometown Hero” by the local chapter of the American Red Cross. We have been working with Jeff Ross and the JOEs for the past six months, and we are grateful that the Red Cross is shining a light on Ross’s excellent work.

Under Ross’s guidance the JOEs have been undertaking many different service projects in the Glouster area, including holding monthly chaperoned dances for area youth and contributing window displays for Rural Action’s Youth Art on High Street project in 2008.

We look forward to continuing this partnership in the future, and once more thank Jeff for his diligent service in the community. If you would like more information on how to get involved in Rural Action's Youth Act program, and our work with Jeff Ross in Glouster, contact Mary Steinmaus (marys@ruralaction.org).
