NEW CASTLE — The Lawrence County Council of Community Services has announced its schedule of programs for the 2013-14 year.

The Council of Community Services is an organization of local agencies seeking to improve communication and cooperation. It’s designed as a resource for community planning and action to address health and human needs.
