HERSHEY, Penn. — Three local youth leaders recently attended Modern Woodmen of America’s Merit Club Leadership Conference. They were included in a group of 433 youth service club leaders from across the U.S. who earned the opportunity to take part in the conference.

Attending the conference were Eloise Merrifield of Litchfield, a club leader for 20 years; Betty MacWhinnie of Litchfield, a club leader for 10 years; and Jennifer Boyd of Poland, a club leader for 2 years. 

The leaders qualified for the conference because their club’s completed a
variety of projects in 2008, which focused on volunteerism,
patriotism, education and fun.
While in Hershey, they attended educational and motivational workshop sessions, networked with other club leaders and gained new ideas for leading volunteer activities for kids.
