CVCS Horns under John Cross provided entertainment for the library's Holiday Open House-2003.

The Leader Teens developed from the Summer Reading Program of 2003 entitled "Shoot for the Moon" funded through a Kid's First Mini Grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.

The group explored leadership qualities, read, and discussed the book, The Moon Robber, interviewed local community leaders and compiled a PowerPoint presentation of their interviews with the aid of a digital camera purchased with the grant money.

They continued their endeavors through the year by putting on the play The Unhappy Santa as well as planning and supervising Christmas crafts for children during the library's Holiday Open House.

 Many of them became Junior Library Assistants.  In February 2004, they worked with Marna Wolaver, volunteer, to assist children in making over 30 Valentines for War Vets.

In May 2004 Leader Teens planned and supervised "Treasure Hunt at Leader Teen Island" for May Family Night. The Leader Teens continue to discuss and learn by doing what qualities a leader exhibits as well as teamwork.

During the summer the group continued to read and learn about being a leader using The Incredible Journey and Holes.  The  Leader Teens presented a playlet under the direction of Robert Terreberry, volunteer, during the Sinclairville History Fair in September 2004.  Entitled "A Look at Sinclairville's Past", Leader Teens researched, wrote the script, and acted  using  a time capsule as a means to go back and meet Major Sinclair.  The community was proud of the Leader Teens' final project and their efforts to keep the village's history alive.
