For the sixth consecutive year, YouthBuild students from across the Commonwealth gathered at the State House for a Day of Service. The day started by removing shrubs that had not survived the winter. These were replaced with new ones transforming the appearance of the main entrance to the building. All of the beds were weeded and covered with a covering of mulch to aid growth and water conservation.
The students were also planting some of the annual flowers that help to beautify this landmark. As always, leadership is an important aspect of every part of the YouthBuild program and the students took some time to go inside this majestic building to meet and thank their legislators for their ongoing support of the YouthBuild programs in their districts and statewide. The result of their efforts was very noticeable by the end of the day, as the front lawn was transformed from the impact of the harsh winter into a beautiful spring panorama.Some of the students even made friends with the State House Rangers were very impressed with the effort and result of the work. Below are some additional pictures from this annual event which has become something that the programs look forward to each year.
