St. Timothy’s students give back to the community during Service Project Day

On October 14 St. Timothy’s School participated in its Service Project Day, which is in conjunction with the school marathon. It is a way for St. Tim’s and its students to give back to the community and the people of Maple Lake.
Between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. students between kindergarten and 8th grade helped with certain tasks ands projects around the community. Third and 4th graders cleaned up St. Charles Cemetery by raking leaves and cleaning head stones. Seventh and 8th graders delivered Meals on Wheels, served lunch at Maple Manor and at the same time told jokes, sang and supplied the residents with many homemade goodies to win during bingo. Pre-kindergarten stayed at St. Tim’s and students between K, 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th grades were broken into small groups, helping out at a couple of local homes, the city park, the fire hall, the rectory, Dingmann Funeral Home, the Villas and the coffee shop. Many of the tasks involved were cleaning and raking leaves.
The students from St. Tim’s ended up collecting 200 bags of leaves and touched many people in the community that day. It was a great way of showing the community that students are willing to give back when called upon.
