Sorority holds youth symposium

SALISBURY ó The Lambda Epsilon Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. recently held a Sigma Youth Symposium to benefit students in the Rowan County community and surrounding areas. The organization plans another event in mid-April.
At the recent event, youths participated in workshops, participated in a mini boot camp led by member Vickie Smith and received healthy snacks and gift bags. Presenters from Rowan Regional Medical Center, the Adolescent Family Enrichment Center, Junior Achievement, Family Crisis Council and the Girl Scouts took part.
On April 16, the sorority chapter will host the Project Reassurance Community Baby Shower. The event takes place from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Rowan County Public Library, 201 West Fisher St.
This program is for pregnant young women and young mothers with children ages birth to 3 years. There will be a workshop, games and giveaways for those who attend.
