Plast Scouts help Sisters Servants with Spring Cleaning

Plast Scouts Perform Spring Cleaning Good Deed in Sloatsburg, NY
By Christian Patti

On June 8, 2012, the Plast group Sokoly (Falcons), part of the 31st kurin (unit) honoring Ivan Vyhovsky from Passaic, NJ, helped with spring cleaning at the grounds of the Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate in Sloatsburg, NY. The five scouts, pictured below, moved and arranged 85 picnic tables and their benches, as well as 9 park benches, for the sisters.

The Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate rely on volunteer support from the Ukrainian Catholic community. These scouts responded to the request of Sister Kathleen Hutsko, SSMI, Provincial Superior, to help in preparation for the yearly pilgrimage, this year on August 11 and 12, 2012. Sister Kathleen said, “There is so much preparation needed to be done and we can’t do it without volunteers. We’re grateful to the Plast youth for coming to assist us.”
