The Oconaluftee Island is known for family outings such as fishing, swimming, cook outs and other events. Cherokee Youth Center Torch club members decided to participate in a trash pick-up so that the Island would be clean and environmental friendly to the wild life. On Wednesday, April 25, Torch Club members completed a successful trash pick-up at Island.
What is Torch Club? Torch Clubs are chartered small-group leadership and service clubs for boys and girls ages 11-13 focusing on character development. A Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which Club staff can help meet the special needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their development. Torch Club members learn to elect officers and work together to plan and implement activities in four areas: service to Club and community, education, health and fitness and social recreation. Torch Club Awards are presented annually to Torch Clubs with outstanding programs and activities in the four areas.
