GHS meets goals for community service day

Goessel High School students participated Friday in a community service day.

Two projects were coordinated by Goessel High School Student Council — a canned food drive and raking leaves for elderly, disabled, or people in need.

A large cardboard barrel was filled twice with an estimated 1,000 cans. The food will be given to Tabor Mennonite Church Food Pantry. As a reward for reaching their goal, students were treated to movies in the auditorium.

After lunch, students divided into groups supervised by teachers and raked leaves. Students raked 24 lawns and filled about 1,000 bags of leaves, which was converted to mulch.

“I felt like I was doing such a good thing,” junior Shanna Klassen said.

“This is a good day of learning how to give back to the community,” GHS Student Council Adviser Brian Stucky said.
