SUBMITTED by Jerry M. Ashley, Lyons Main Street Program (8-Jun-2010)

The Lyons Main Street Program honored the Senior Ambassadors at Lyons High School's "Moving-up Day" with a certificate of appreciation for their service to their community and a small crystal paper-weight etched with the LMSP logo. The Senior Ambassadors, including both the Valedictorian and Salutatorian for the 2010 LHS graduating class, Joanna De Vries and Vaugh Faison along with their fellow graduating Senior Ambassadors, Ariel Palone and Gino Colatarci welcomed to the stage the 2010-2011 Lyons Youth Ambassadors. The new Senior Ambassadors are Kayla James, Carla Lash, Lucas Aunkst, and David Perry and the newly named Junior Ambassadors are Halle Cook, George Dobbins, Claudia Henry and Johnny Hill.

The Lyons Youth Ambassadors were selected by the staff and teachers of Lyons High School and will represent LHS at all community events. They will promote community service within the student population and urge Lyons' resident to volunteer to make their community great. Their first appearance will be in the 20th Anniversary Peppermint Days Grand Parade on a float they will decorate themselves to celebrate "Peppermint".

The Lyons Youth Ambassadors will represent the school as a liaison with all other organizations in Lyons. The "Pumpkin-palooza (Lyons' fall harvest festival) Pearl Street Pumpkin Roll" (October 23rd) will be their Lyons Main Street Program community project where they will learn to organize a community event while marketing and promoting it. The Ambassadors will be responsible for setting up the Pearl Street raceway as well as numbering and logging in the pumpkin entries. The numbered pumpkins will be loaded into a front loader and taken to the top of Pearl Street where they will be dumped into the haybail lined raceway. The winner, whichever pumpkin crosses the finish line first, will win one-half of the entry pot. The Ambassadors will declare their "charity" to whom their 50 percent of the entry fees will be donated.

The LMSP congratulates and thanks our graduating Ambassadors and wish them many successes in their future. The community service they provided to Lyons will serve them well. Congratulations to the 2010-2011 Lyons Youth Ambassadors.
