Paoli Fall Festival Parade. On September 10, the Paoli Fall Festival Parade took place. “As far as scoring is concerned - we were the ONLY band at our Fall Festival Parade - so it was easy to be in "1st Place," Said Mr. Laughlin, The Pride of Paoli Band Director. 25 to 30 years ago, many bands came to the local town parades and participated. In 1999, we had 10 bands at the Mitchell Persimmon Festival ... for it was their 150th anniversary and they paid the bands to come).
These events provide students with the opportunity to make independent decisions and display leadership. Whether it be opportunities for students to volunteer for Freshman Orientation or Parents Night or any other student council event, they display academic and life-skills that will be of good use to them in their futures. Our events have always been successful and those who have been involved have been nothing short of impressed with our services. The canned food drive is a very popular event that we hold at our school. The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis.
From hands-on service around the world, to originating successful fundraisers, I participate in various aspects of community service. Some of my fundraisers have even been published. I currently spend most of my time doing service towards my fundraising project expanding access to education. I could not imagine being one of the over 75 million children without access to education. As I was beginning my hobby of DJing, I immediately decided that I will partner with Pencils of Promise (PoP) to start my own fundraising project where twenty percent of my profits from every event DJ’d will go to the organization.
See stores are always doing things like that. They also are doing discounts like that too. They help our community so much and in very helpful ways. They also do at lot of fundraisers to help needy kids too. The final thing that makes Alpena so warm and friendly is the community its self.

“We’re overwhelmed by the response from the small community on Thetis Island to protect Fairyslipper Forest as a nature reserve,” said Ann Eriksson, founding director of the Thetis Island Nature Conservancy. “In the first year of the campaign over 100 islanders, out of a population of 350, have pledged a third of the funds needed to purchase the
NFL PLAY 60 is the NFL 's movement to inspire kids to be active everyday 60 minutes a day in order to help do away with the tendency of childhood obesity. For example, in addition to participating in NFL Play 60, the Philadelphia Eagles have been recognized for the Eagles Youth Partnership charity that serves low-income children with a focus on health and educational programming (Heinze, Soderstrom, & Zdroik, 2014, p.672) The NFL and NFL Players Association have supported National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October consecutively for four years.

In my sophomore year of high school, I began an organization dedicated to my passions. Through my organization, I have earned over 500 hours of community service and was awarded the Presidential Volunteer Service Bronze Medallion for my continued efforts in giving back to the community. During the summer, I assist
For my community service project, I held a yard sale on October 17th, 2015 from 6:30 a.m. to one. I had received supplies from my family members and from my church members to sell. I made flyers and posted them in the community facilities, had the radio make an announcement, had the school announce the yard sale for two weeks, and had it announced on social media. This project was a success because with the yard sale and donations, I raised over 100 dollars to donate to The Wounded Warrior Project. I chose The Wounded Warrior Project because of the personal ties I have to the United States Military.
We modeled ours club after Miano Elementary Schools Running Club. After speaking with their staff about the positive impact it was having at their site, I feel that it would be of the upmost importance to implement a running club at all of our sites. In conclusion, implementing not only created an active and fun environment for students, it also allowed our staff to interact with parents and community members in a positive manner. Thus, creating welcoming
What I done this past year to contribute to the Alameda community Learning Center is that me and my friend, Justin planned the fundraisers for the class of 2019. We almost raised 700 dollars for the whole class of 2019 students. Also, I was elected to be an officer of the red cross club next year. So ,my next year 's plan is that, I will encourage everyone to join the red cross club because they can help change the world and aclc, and they can get their community service hours.
Friends of Survivors was established in 2012 to honor women in our local community who survived breast cancer. Although, breast cancer receives the most attention during Breast Cancer Awareness month each October, we work all year long to raise funds for the prevention, treatment, and cure of this devastating disease. This nonprofit organization raises money for donation to the American Cancer Society and Rebirth Alliance by hosting an annual Pink the Runway Fashion Show. However, Ms. Candice Brent has been a volunteer with our charitable organization for the past four years and she has put in a lot of his spare time and effort to make our work a success. Her responsibility is to focus on creating different activities to help raise money to

It is a raffle contest that lasts through out the whole month of December, where you have the potential to win money. So I am selling each Calendar for $10 each, along with that you have your name entered into the raffle.
Edson 's fabulous Summer Festival This week I was writing a 'Tip of the Hat ' column for the outstanding effort of the Edson and District Chamber of Commerce and the many volunteers who helped bring the Edson Summer Festival to the community, and particularly to the children, who enjoy it so much. Then suddenly my email chimes, and in one of those strange moments of synchronicity, it is our writer Deanna Mitchener with a column on the very topic of volunteering! Deanna, an avid volunteer herself, says it much better than I could (see below). So, I will leave this column with a resounding thank you to the Chamber and its volunteers for hosting an event the whole community can enjoy. Anyone who has tried to plan a wedding down to its most
I enjoy helping and volunteering with Criminal Justice and I believe law enforcement is community originated. The great thing about community service is that there are so many opportunities right in your very own neighborhood. You can dedicate as little or as much of your free time in volunteering for something that has impacted you or something that you have interest in. Police officer are always there to led hands to those in need, which is something I enjoy to do for other and volunteering is one plus for being in law enforcement. Volunteering has made me a well-rounded person and given me the opportunity to help those who have once become a victim of our societal issues get back on their feet.
