    {under_construction_animated.gif}For my community service, I decided to help the Second Baptist Church in Edmeston by mowing their lawn. I decided to do this because my grandpa use to do it for them before he passed away, so after he passed I wanted to keep doing it because I know he would want me to. “Service” means to help or do work for someone and not get paid. Service is very important because it can help with valuable skills that you can use later on in life.
    I learned that doing community service is a very good deed because it makes you feel good knowing that you could help someone. It also looks good on a job application. You don’t always need to make money doing work and helping people. There have been no challenges during my experience and has only impacted me in a positive way.
    I enjoy mowing lawns so I figured it would be easier if I did it so that the pastor or someone else didn’t have to. I think doing community service will help me in the future because it has taught me that it pays off to do good for others. I will continue to serve the Second Baptist Church this summer. Helping the Second Baptist Church has taught me responsibility. Community service helps people in need and it can make them feel good.
    Community service has influenced me and brought me closer to people in the church community. I have enjoyed the experience and hope that I get to continue helping them and many others. As I go off to college I hope to find more organizations to help.
    I attended a public meeting for Bassett Healthcare School Based Healthzone. This helped me to become more informed about health.

    A public meeting that I went to was a monthly meeting for the Fire Dept. In these meetings they go over the calls from the previous month and other orders of business that may need voted on. They also include a treasures report and bills that need to be paid. It doesn't take a lot to make a change in your community just do your part and continue to volunteer and it will go along way.

    {under_construction_animated.gif}Community service is a very important service in a particular area such as Edmeston. You have the choice to make a difference and help out in your community and I highly advice that you do. It just shows that people are willing to do their part to help others without having a direct benefit for themselves. Community service is voluntary work intended to help people without a direct benefit to yourself. My examples of community service are when I volunteered to work at the splash path my junior year. The splash path is a 5k run to raise money for the community of Pathfinder. I volunteered to throw the paint at the runners. This is an example of community service because I did my part even if it was a small part to raise money for a good cause not for me but the purpose of it. Another example would by my involvement in the Explorers Post through the Edmeston Fire Department. The fire dept. is completely volunteer and the explorers are the same. What we do is go to fire calls, car accidents, etc. with the fire dept. and help by dragging house, grabbing equipment, moving debris and sometimes we can even put out the fire. We have training with the fire dept. so we know what the tools are and how to use them and tactics of fighting fire.
    For the splash path I learned where the money that we raised was going which was to Pathfinder Village. At first I wasn’t sure what the money was being raised for if it was just for Interact so when I heard it was going to a worthy cause I was very pleased. With Explorers it’s just fun to be able to volunteer and do something that I am interested in at the same time. For Pathfinder there are plenty of projects and odds and ends that the money can go to, to better the community for the population of people that live there.
    During the splash path I didn’t learn too many skills other than how you feel after you volunteer for a worthy cause. Community service is a big thing for citizenship because as a citizen you should want to help others or feel obligated to help at least once. But during explorers you learn to execute tasks as a unit fast and efficiently also you have to remember what fire truck the equipment is in. Normally you find one person even in the fire dept. that you work with constantly and always have each other’s backs. Another thing with the explorer post is that I found that I do actually like to be in the fire service area and that when I’m older I will definitely join the fire department.
    I would most definitely work another splash path and I am going to continue to take part in explorers all the way up to when I’m old enough to join the fire department. With the splash path I never thought that I would have a good time working for something like that. But it was a blast and I would definitely do it again. And the explorers post I knew that I was going to have a good time.
    Participating in community service has supported my values in how my family has always been involved in the community and I’m glad that I am able to do my part and actually enjoy doing it. Community service is very important for the people in that area, it shows that there are people that are still out there that are willing to help others without getting a direct benefit for themselves. I feel that students should be required to do community service because most of the time people don’t want to do community service because they think its boring but once they try it I feel they will volunteer even more.
    A public meeting that I went to was a monthly meeting for the Fire Dept. In these meetings they go over the calls from the previous month and other orders of business that may need voted on. They also include a treasures report and bills that need to be paid. It doesn't take a lot to make a change in your community just do your part and continue to volunteer and it will go along way.
