The Stimulus Program has provided the city of Hardy with employees to help work where they are needed in the city. Thornton said that NADC called and asked if the city had work for these young men. The boys are working doing mowing, debris clean up, painting and other odd jobs for the city at no cost to the city with funds from the Stimulus Plan. Thornton praised the boys efforts and said they were very happy to have them working for the city.
