Student Opportunities – Summer has arrived and students are working to comply with their service learning hour requirements. Matching our youth with organizations that need their assistance serves both, and ultimately serves our community. While every attempt has been made to ensure compliance with the service learning hour requirements, they do differ from county to county (Carroll and Frederick), so please check with your local school coordinator to ensure that the service qualifies. I also ask that the youth contact the following individuals and organizations directly for specifics on assisting:
Dick Heiger - Mt. Airy Beautification Committee @ 301-829-8996, to help with rewarding outdoor gardening projects this summer; Monika Weierbach - Town Hall @ 301-829-1424, for clerical office or other tasks; Ellie Bonde - Blossom and Basket @ 301-829-8300, if you would like to help with any of the exciting Main Street Events, such as the Chili Cook-off, Main Street Christmas, Celebrate Summer event, History 101, etc.; Dick Swanson - MAMSA @ 301-829-1983 to help with eco-friendly and healthy Farmers Market; Terry Baker – MAVFC @ 301-829-0100 ext. 363 to assist with the Mount Airy Volunteer FireCompany, Brynn Miller-The Four County Lions@ email@example.com to assist with the Lions Carnival. For those with an interest in animals contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you like the Caboose and meeting people? We need volunteers to staff the caboose for visitors from Noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. If interested, contact Councilman Larry @ email@example.com, For those with an interest in sports, several local 5K’s could use race assistants, please contact Patrick Rockinberg @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully you will find something that interest you and benefits the community. Have a great summer!!!!
