The forecast was threatening an inch of rain, but by the time of our actual morning of service, the day was merely overcast. Over 50 of our students, parents, and teachers descended on YMCA Camp Tricklin' Falls in East Kingston, NH to spend the morning raking/hauling leaves, painting murals, and constructing camp furniture. We then celebrated our whole year together with a cookout and got to play pick-up games, throw the frisbee around, and practice archery.
We recorded two Mannequin Challenge videos, featuring music recorded by two of our students! Then today at lunch, two groups of students put on skits about following up with donors. We emphasized how important personal follow-up is, and the groups showed us a "successful" follow-up, meaning the donor said "Yes!", and one that didn't result in a donation.
Today, the Main Hall was decked out with extra tables, lots of pens, pencils, and extra letters as students began or continued personalizing their Servathon letters.
On Saturday, May 21st, approximately 85 students and parents descended on YMCA Camp Tricklin' Falls in East Kingston, NH to engage in various service projects around the grounds.
