Junior Youth Demonstrate Qualities Through Service

 In its Ridvan 2010 message to the Bahá’ís of the world, the Universal House of Justice describes the special qualities of junior youth:  “altruism, an acute sense of justice, eagerness to learn about the universe and a desire to contribute to the construction of a better world.”  We are pleased to share this newsflash from Ann Arbor, MI (A), about a junior youth group that has put these qualities into practice, and drawn the attention of the wider community in doing so.
The junior youth group that is centered in the northeast side of Ann Arbor has just received a certificate of recognition from the University of Michigan.  This award was presented to the group by the University of Michigan's Meals on Wheels program for the monthly service the group has engaged in for nearly two years (Fall of 2008 to the present).
The photograph of the award has been added to our photo slideshow at the upper right corner of this blog!
