Such a busy day! In addition to the 2018 Huskies that spent the day serving people in the greater Bethel area, and those that entertained and provided lunch to an appreciative group of Senior community members, approximately 40 Sophomores spent the day in the Lewiston-Auburn area. there, they engaged in volunteer work with a considerable list of service-based organizations that included:

  • The Good Shepherd Food Bank
  • St. Mary’s Nutrition Center
  • Trinity Jubilee Center
  • St. Mary’s Food Pantry/Lots to Gardens
  • Hope Haven Gospel Mission
  • Tree Street Youth Center
  • Maine Immigrant and Refugee Services

All this good work was put together by Master of Ceremonies supreme, Adam Leff, and his team. In addition to this, Alec Newell led a group of volunteers to the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing in Lewiston, and then on to the Rumford Elementary School in nearby Rumford, ME.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.

(Trivia of the day: According to the website Phrases.org, this expression originated from the text of an instructional talk given by the newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane to the Syracuse Advertising Men’s Club, in March 1911: “Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words.” I thought you’d like to know.)

In that spirit, I’d like to share some images from today’s outing. Feel free to click on each photo to see a larger version.
