It’s a great privilege for high school students to belong to the National Honor Society. But with the privilege come obligations, and community service is one of them. And indeed, a historic church like ours is never lacking in work opportunities!
So I was pleased when Allison and her boyfriend Brian offered to clean out a pile of construction debris in the cemetery. It had been left there since the rebuilding of the floor of the gas meter room last year. They purchased a tote dumpster, brought it on site, and realized that the pick-up cost was more than they could spend ($170).
What a delight that Lolly came to this clean up activity, just before they started filling up my car! She offered to have them fill up her car instead, always using the tote-dumpster as a containing bag. Then Lolly and Brian drove everything to Brian’s house, where his father said he would take care of it.
All in all, it was a great service to the church, and we thank Lolly, Brian and Allison for their volunteering that day!
