WILMINGTON — The Clinton County Youth Council (CCYC) will host its fourth annual a Make A Difference Day community service event and fundraiser disc golf tournament on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Community service projects including a litter clean-up of the Luther Warren Peace Path will run from 10 a.m. to noon. A “service celebration” lunch for all participants will be provided by CCYC following the completion of the projects.

Saturday will also mark the launch of the “Clinton County Bike Share” program co sponsored by CC Board of DD and made possible with grant funds from Health First for Clinton County. The goal of the bike share is to increase access to transportation and exercise by providing bicycles and education opportunities to Clinton County youth and community members.

A bicycle maintenance/work station at CCYC youth center will be established and host regular educational workshops and clinics on bicycle maintenance and safety.

The bike share program will also make available accessible bicycles for community residents with disabilities and those needing a three-wheeled bicycle. And, bicycles will be donated for use by residents of the Clinton County Homeless Shelter.

A fundraiser disc golf tournament will follow lunch. Registration is from 12:30-1:15 p.m. Students play free; adults’ registration is $20. Discs will be available for purchase at the event.

CCYC is Clinton County’s only free after-school program for middle and high school age students that offers mentoring, academic support, daily snacks/meals, and positive youth outreach.
