Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America members Lei-Lani Young, left, and Lesly Lara have led a project over the 2019-20 school year to honor the elderly by visiting residents of The Webb House. With the help of other club members, the service project offers visits and activities for those residents.

Warren County High School’s FCCLA members have been honoring the elderly and they are urging the community to help. 

Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is an organization at WCHS that provides personal growth, leadership, and career opportunities to students. Its service project for the 2019-20 school year has been “Honoring the Elderly” with its focus being The Webb House. 

The project is led by WCHS freshmen Lesly Lara and Lei-Lani Young. 

“Our ultimate goal is to bring happiness to the residents of The Webb House while involving the community,” said Lara.

Every month, with the help of their peers, Lara and Young schedule several activities. Some of the activities that have already been held include playing Bingo, caroling in Christmas pajamas, two movie nights where residents watched the classic version of “A Christmas Carol” and the live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” and a spa day where members, along with Creative Illusions cosmetologist Theresa Young, gave residents manicures and pedicures.

Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities.

The local WCHS group is led by educators Suzanne Prater, Megan Sager, and Connie Bell. 

If anyone would like to become involved with this project, please mark your calendar for the upcoming event days: 

March 13 will be “Move it March” where members and residents perform a variety of light stretches and exercises.

April 10 residents will do the age-old tradition of dyeing eggs for Easter.

May 2 is a “Spring Formal/Prom” and Lara and Young will host the event.

“All three events will be a rewarding experience for everyone involved,” said Young. “Everyone is welcome to come to any event so please join in on the fun.” 

More events will be announced as they are scheduled.
