A day of service at Penn Yan Academy

Students "sold" the free car wash to passing traffic

Friday the 13th was lucky this year. Penn Yan Academy held its Service Day in some of the best weather 2011 has yet had to offer.

PYA students, faculty and administration offered their help to the youngest and the oldest residents of the county, as well as not-for-profit organizations, service groups, and the county in general.

The list of those who benefitted from their help includes The American Cancer Society, the Red Cross, ARC of Yates, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Clinton Crest, the Homestead, the Yates County Fairground, Food for the Needy, the Humane Society, Veterans’ memorial flags, Keuka Comfort Care Home, the Keuka Lake School and Head Start, the Outlet Trail, Rainbow Junction, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital, the Yates County Arts Council, the Yates County Genealogical & Historical Society.
