Service projects needed

To the Editor:

The Fairmont Jr./Sr. High School Community Service Project Day is coming up on Friday, May 17. Rain date is May 24. Fairmont Student HUDDLE Groups are looking for service projects to work on.

There are 46 HUDDLE Groups with an average of 15 students (grades 7-12) per group looking to help others in our great community.

During past service days, groups of Fairmont students have worked on projects such as yard work, landscaping, garage or basement cleanout, washing windows and basic home improvements.

Other projects that have been worked on by Fairmont students are cleaning the downtown area, cleaning the city parks, going to nursing homes to spend time with residents, going to the Humane Society and helping at local businesses.

As students, we see our Service Project Day as a day where we can give back to the community that has given us so much.

If you are an individual or a business that has a need for some extra help this spring, please consider filling out an application for a service project. Applications can be requested through Mark Hernes by emailing him at: or calling the high school office at (507) 238-4411.
