This month we're going to take a peek at some of the programming we provide in the area of Community Service opportunities. These projects vary over the years. Of course, there are some projects that we look forward to every year. The large service project we support and encourage you to participate in is Senior Woodworkers.
This is a group who works on projects to donate to Heart to Heart.
You just need to have an interest and desire to help, that's all! The woodworkers also did a special project this year of making 3,000 blocks for the luminary bags! Whew! Also at the Center we fold luminary bags for Feet at the Fairgrounds. It's a great time, with a lot of visiting and reflection on our community. Four thousand bags were folded this year. Our next big service project is the SMSU student welcome bags. This project takes three to four days. There will be many stacks, piles and bags! This project is done in conjunction with the Chamber. Finally, there will be an opportunity to be involved in a "Neighborhood Project." Something all seniors are good at.
So look for the details coming soon.
Throughout the year there are numerous activities to be involved in one day community service projects. Some examples include being interviewed by SMSU students, sharing your stories with middle school students or playing Bingo with kindergartners and first graders.
If interested in any of these projects or if you have a project you would like the seniors to be involved in, give me a call at 537-109.
