The Friends and Servants program is a YMCA program that helps rehabilitate young offenders through community service programs. The Puyallup program is designed to teach troubled youth about farming, lawn care and landscaping, Puyallup berry and farm maintainence.
This video, created by Sumner leaders, the YMCA and Rainier Country, is meant to show the community the potential of developing Orton Junction and the kind of community programs that could be brought to Sumner.
"The process to bring Orton Junction here is long and complicated, but the City of Sumner keeps at it because many of its citizens recognize the benefits of bringing programs like Friends and Servants and the YMCA to this community," says Sumner communications director Carmen Palmer in the video.
