Nowadays some youth groups raise money selling cookies, others organize a car wash, in Wyoming we put on our boots, hat and gloves and work hard all day on the ranch!
The Holy Apostles Teen Youth Group has started their fundraising campaign in order to attend upcoming retreats and the annual summer camp. The Youth Group spent the day clearing heavy wood debris from the pasture at a local ranch in order to contribute to their fundraising goal. The debris was once used to protect cattle from the snow and wind during the winter months, but is no longer needed in that particular pasture, so the youth continuously loaded the dump truck until the pasture was cleared. The debris was dumped in a burn pit for disposal and the group finished for the day just before sunset. Afterwards, the group went over to Burger Inn for well deserved milkshakes and burgers.
It was hard work out there working on the ranch, but each of the teens went away knowing they gave it their all and did what needed to be done to get the job completed!
