Stanstead Col­lege stu­dents sup­port the com­mu­nity

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Un­der cool con­di­tions and cloudy skies, Stanstead Col­lege stu­dents and teach­ers fanned out across Stanstead, Ayer’s Cliff, North Hat­ley and Derby, Vt. Thurs­day af­ter­noon as part of their an­nual Com­mu­nity Day. This was the third year for the spring clean­ing ses­sion and the first time the stu­dents ven­tured out of town, par­tic­i­pat­ing in pub­lic cleanups, walk­ing dogs and vis­it­ing lo­cal se­niors. Stu­dents raked leaves and picked up de­bris at Cen­te­nary United Church, Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary School, the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum, the North Hat­ley Club and on Col­lege grounds, among other lo­ca­tions. They cleared de­bris along the Tomi­fo­bia Na­ture Trail. They vis­ited se­niors and shut-ins at the Con­naught Home, Derby Green and Stanstead Manor, dis­as­sem­bled a fence, sorted books at the Ro­tary Club Book Store and the Haskell Free Li­brary, walked an­i­mals at the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety and more. The day was or­ga­nized by Com­mu­nity Ser­vice co­or­di­na­tor Car­men Camp­bell.
