LOCK HAVEN — Sixteen new participants of Leadership Clinton County recently gathered for an extensive two-day opening retreat to kick-off their training as future leaders of Clinton County.

Participants were involved in a variety of communication and teambuilding exercises.

These exercises were designed to help the participants get acquainted, learn trust, and to understand the importance of effective communication and teamwork.

Participants were also introduced to a personal assessment tool to help them learn more about themselves, others and how to deal in situations where relationships are involved.

The retreat ended with the class selecting local organizations to volunteer their time while participating in the program.
