To the Editor:

While this letter might be a little late, I would still like to thank all the football players from Thomas Worthington High School and their coach for the wonderful job they did volunteering to clean up my yard on Leadership Worthington's Service Day on May 6.

The yard was full of nasty thistles and other assorted weeds that I, being 81, couldn't put out myself. It would have cost me a good deal of money if I had to pay someone to do this.

I'm grateful to the leadership program for sponsoring this service for older people like me and for the young men for giving their time and energy to help.
