LOWVILLE — The Lewis County Department of Social Services employed 34 youths through its annual summer work program.

“The kids were incredible,” said Pennie A. Getman, supervisor of children’s services. “They helped out the whole county.”

The program, open to youths ages 14 to 21, had 25 employers. It also featured a mobile crew consisting of a crew chief and four youth workers that helped with grounds maintenance, debris removal, facility cleaning and other labor requests at various facilities and cemeteries.

Participants are allowed to work 35 hours per week and are paid the minimum wage.

For more information on the annual program, call 376-5800.
