Alexis Garfield and Unique Anderson are Girl Scouts with Troop 2001 at Bellevue Elementary School. Troop 2001 is partnering with the Rotary Club to raise Pennies for Polio.
At recent meeting of the Syracuse Inner City Rotary Club, the guest speaker was Barbara Peterson, owner of Peterson Sewing School. Peterson opened the sewing school in 2008 to meet the demand for sewing classes and fashion design here in Syracuse. She is also serving at-risk youth through a community outreach program once a week. The school operates at the Erwin United Methodist Church on the eastside, but is looking at expanding to Liverpool and Onondaga Hill. The Syracuse Inner City Rotary Club meets weekly, Wednesday mornings at the Salvation Army Headquarters, 749 S. Warren Street. The Club focuses on the issues of literacy and youth development in the city of Syracuse.
