Cari and I felt like this would be a great event to participate in with the kids. When we got down to the stadium Saturday morning we met up with the other volunteers. Most of the city council members were there along with the police and fire departments. The cub scout leader was there with a large group of energetic boys.
The mayor kicked off the event by describing the goals and the plan for the morning and then thanking everyone for coming out.
It would have been great to see more volunteers, but for our first event, I felt like we had a good turn out. My kids asked me why we were doing this and I explained it like doing chores.
It takes everyone in our house to keep everything clean and updated. That's why we all have chores. It's the same way for the town we live in. We all have a responsibility to do our part to improve the community.
It was a worth while way to spend a Saturday morning.
