PROPHETSTOWN – Members of Royal Neighbors of America Youth Chapter 516 participated in several activities during the last quarter of 2012.

In October, the chapter visited Tanners Orchard in Speer. Members also filled several baskets with items for clients of the YWCA of the Sauk Valley, for Make A Difference Day on Nov. 15.

The group also gave away a decorated tree and wreath to raise money for the Tampico Food Pantry, and sang Christmas carols for residents at Good Samaritan Society – Prophets Riverview.
