Forty citizens joined together Jan 19th at the St. Johns Presbyterian Church to form a community association, “Your Wardsville”.
It was a very special evening on the eve of President Obama’s inaugueration. He has challenged all of us to roll up our sleeves and do a little more to make our communities and our planet a better place:
For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act – not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do. – President Obama, Jan 20, 2009
