Two groups of volunteers are credited with aiding greatly in the success of the Head Start program in the Twin Cities. The program for pre-school-age children has volunteers working at furnishing child care, serving coffee, helping with discussions, and transportation for mothers’ meetings. The two groups working this year include the L & A Mothers, who meet Tuesday at the Auburn Methodist Church with 36 volunteers from the church St. Phillips’ Parish, and the community at large. Another group, Neighborhood Mothers Club meets Thursdays at the High Street Congregational Church, which co-sponsors the club with the YWCA. In this group there are 34 volunteers.  A spokesman for the volunteers said today it is hoped that additional groups can be formed next fall.
