MAKING CHANGES

About 25 homeowners in the Hyde Park community got help this week from more than 300 Southern Baptist youths, called World Changers. The primarily teenage volunteers repaired porches and roofs, painted and did minor carpentry. This was the sixth year World Changers has joined with Richmond County on a summer project. The chaperones and volunteers, sponsored by the Augusta Association of Baptist Churches, are returning to their homes across the Southeast today .
