County of Roscommon receives grant from RCCF

The County of Roscommon has received a grant of $250.00 from the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund of RCCF. The funding helped to provide the materials needed for a youth garden.

This garden has been built, and will continue to be maintained by youth probationers in Roscommon County. According to Tracy Hallead, juvenile probation officer, many of the youth on probation have problems, such as transportation, with completing their community service hours. This garden will not only help the kids fulfill their community service obligations, but also teach them responsibility and self sufficiency.
