Students Take to the Streets for Community Day

Students and teachers of Stanstead College left class and entered the community May 3, rakes and shovels in hand, as part of the school’s annual Community Service Day.

Divided into groups, the student body fanned out around Stanstead and even Ayer’s Cliff, Magog and Derby, Vt. to help with spring cleaning, raking, gardening, digging, sorting, even walking the dogs and petting the cats.

At Sunnyside Elementary School, for example, students transplanted raspberry bushes, turned over mulch on the playground, painted lines on the soccer field and prepared a tetherball playing area.

Students trimmed branches on Railroad Street and raked leaves and debris in Hackett Park and at the Colby-Curtis Museum. Others picked up garbage at the ball park.

Other groups visited shut-ins at Manoir Stanstead and gave some love to the pets awaiting adoption at the Frontier Animal Society.

Despite the drizzle, the students embraced the spirit of the afternoon and were pleased to give back to the community that welcomes them year after year.
