A youth center: let’s do this!

I wanted to thank you for the great coverage that was given to NEO. I was out of town for a few weeks and just recently got caught up with all my reading.

The story by Ivan Natividad was especially interesting because he touched on the fact that both Lynn Skrukrud and Halli Ellis went away to school but remained devoted to the cause. Both girls are graduating with degrees that could take them to other towns or cities to work yet they chose to come back to Nevada County and give back. This says a lot about these young ladies. Thank you, Reinette Senum and Stan Meckler, for the viewpoint that you gave.

I feel it is about time the community realizes that our county needs to provide activities for our youth and community. These girls have the passion and have also dedicated over six years of their lives to give back and enrich the lives of many. Let’s stand together to do the same.

Now is the time! Stop by SPD market, Caleb’s Creamery, Cafe Mekka and Miner Moe’s and donate today. In the end it will be rewarding to know that as a community we built the center.
