The 59th Annual Crystal Ball was held last month at the Hi Q Venue. Assistance League of Chaves County presented 16 seniors who have volunteered over 120 hours each during the past four years to our community. Family and friends joined them for a dinner and dance to celebrate and honor them for this accomplishment.

Assisteens is a teen organization that involves learning to serve others, develop lasting friendships and gain perspective of the community they live in.

They enjoy volunteering with the Down Syndrome Foundation of Southeastern New Mexico, making blankets for CASA, ushering at the Roswell Symphony, serving at the Homes for Heroes banquet and many other activities.

They also attend a variety of presentations about such topics as personal safety, etiquette, CPR/Project Heart Start and how to write a resume. They held a food drive for Harvest Ministries and were involved in a fundraiser to help with Assistance League’s Operation School Bell Program. There are currently 75 Assisteens in ninth to 12th grade.

The Assisteens wish to thank their families, friends, Assistance League and the community of Chaves County for the opportunity to serve, learn and make a difference in the lives of others.
