New Grant Of $,819 For Service Center Upper Des Moines Opportunity Inc. has received approval of its first Community Action Program Grant. This Community Action grant of $43,879 for the four county area will be used to establish a multi-service center in each county. The sixteen member County Advisory Committee makes the decision as to the type of program that is most needed in that particular county. The County Boards met in February and they will be meeting again soon to finalize their plans. The outreach service developed by these county committees will be available in all areas of the county. Outreach workers will be from low-income backgrounds. There is interest in Home Health Service. This could be a homemaker service or a visiting nurse activity. These four counties are in need of additional services in the home. Another program is especially needed in the Upper Des Moines area because there is no employment office in the four counties. This grant will set up an activity in each county. It is called community action because the local committee plans the program and local agencies contribute to the project. The other programs that are in operation Agencies cooperating in this community action program are Employment Service, On-the-Job Training, M.D.T.A., Social Welfare, Extension, hospitals, Vocational Rehabilitation, and churches.

(Mueller Photo) Still Making Plans For SCA Jr. High Here Pastors of Garrigan's five parishes met Friday morning with lay representatives of St. Cecelia's grade school to discuss room problems facing St. Cecelia's. As announced earlier, St. Cecelia's first grade will attend Algona Community Schools next year, but room for the first grade must be provided by the parish for the following school years. The desire of St. Cecelia's to acquire rooms by adding on to Garrigan were explored. Such an addition, it was stressed, would be the program of St. Cecelia's only and not involve the other Garrigan parishes. No decision was reached, although many phases of such a program were discussed. More light will be shed on the subject later this month when a survey of the parish needs will be made by Bishop Frank H. Greteman, Auxiliary Bishop of Sioux City, and Father James K. Lafferty, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools. Rummage Sale were given by Gloria Canaday, Mary Ann Erdman, Linda Weydert, Becky Buscher, Terri and Rowena Wildin, Jacque Roetliler and Marian Friders.
