Huntley Youth Serve at Soup Kitchen Youth from First Congregational and St. Mary's Churches teamed together on March 16th to feed eighty homeless people at the Elgin Soup Kettle. They had raised funds on "Super Bowl Sunday" for food for the Soup Kettle, and on the 16th went to Elgin Brethren Church on Highland Avenue to serve some of that food to the homeless. Fifteen youth and adults from these two churches served the dinner meal. Six of them, from First Congregational, did all the cooking as well. The cooks were ^^^'ss, Lynette, Matdiew and Kyle '^mobley, and Ann & Robert Huntley Chamber Seeks Volunteers The Huntley Chamber of Com¬ merce is looking for energetic citizens to help clean up Huntley. The cleanup will take place on Saturday, April 20 from 8:00 - 11:00. For more information, or to volunteer your time, please call Dr. Bill Awe at 669-0266. Chirstiansen. The servers from First Congregational included Jeff Ackerman, Carla Kothe, Sandi Origer, Keith & Vicki Seyller, and Rev. Woodruff. Bell and two youth from St. Mary's also worked on serving and cleaning up. St. Mary's participation was to give a few people the experience so they could go back to St. Mary's and see if they could establish their own regular serving days at the Soup Kettle. First Congregational has been working at the Elgin Soup Kettle on a regular basis for a.couple years. Their next scheduled date to serve is on April 13th. PTA Needs More Volunteers The Huntley PTA is in need of a few more people to help them erect the new playground equipment. The date is set for March 30. The equipment is being donated by CCS West.

These McHenry County 4-H Ambassadors participated in an intemational telenet at Galvin Center on the Motorola Campus in Schumburg: Back row; Phil Ksziaek, David Simandl, Richard Schauer, Middle row; Heidi Ottumn, Cyndi Bartel, Nancy Harris, Jenny Taylor, Nicole Good, John Schroyer, Scott Ruth, Front; Tim Hoeft and James Ksziaek. By Tim Hoeft McHenry County 4-H Ambassadors participated in an intemational telenet at the Galvin Center on the Motorola Campus in Schaumburg. Mary Marin of Cary, representing the "People to People Exchange" arranged this "Student Unity Teleconference." The lime for a telenet has to be prescheduled and at 8am we were hooked up via satellites thru Canada to our counterparts in Johanesburg, South Africa where it was 4pm. Mary Marin was in South Ar wilh five students ages 15-17 from a private school. We began by waving to each other and introducing ourselves. We could see each other on television screens. The South African students feel there is a "new spirit" in their country as they adjust to their new democracy. They are very influenced by the United States and perceive us as doing everything first. South Africa was very proud to host the World Rugby Cup Championship. While comparing sports they wanted to know why us Americans wear "all that fluff when we play football? We defended ourselves as being smarter than rugby players because pads protect us from serious injury while playing football. In South Africa everybody is involved in sports with golf also being very popular. In their Johanesburg school, everybody participates in clubs and activities because they have a one hour period at the end of their school day when all the clubs meet. Instead of 4-H they have a "rotary club called Interact." Interact does community service projects and raises money for the underprivileged. According to the Johanesburg students, drugs are a major problem. They do not have gangs as we know them, but they have problems with the f which has become "like the mafia." The students favorite music in Johnanesburg is RAVE which seems lo be a combination of our rap and R B music. They didn't seem to know much about our favorite... country and western. For fun, they do many of the same things we do. Just when we had really got the conversation going we were all informed by the controller in Canada that we had five minutes left. We asked to exchange addresses so we could write...but they didn't want to correspond by mail.they thought all Americans had computers with internet....They want to "E-Mail" us! It was very enlightening for all of us to leam of how the U.S. is perceived as Americans having it ALL while il was just an enlightening for our Johanesburg friends to find out we don't have it all. Mary Marin left them with a map, showing where McHenry County is as well as some pictures and a blue/while ribbon in remembrance of the Fox River Grove train accident. On Mary's return home she shared pictures/slides with us showing us how Johanesburg is much like our Schaumburg and the people there really don't ride elephants around on the su-eels.
