“We are in community each time we find a place where we belong and find we are needed.” –Peter F. Block
I helped out at back to school night here at Friends. My job was to find the schedules for parents to follow as they went through the night. I shared that job with two other friends from 9th grade. It was fun meeting a lot of parents. When parents passed through the halls in between classes, we had to help them find their way to many classrooms through out the school. A lot of my friends also helped at back to school night which made it fun while helping the parents.
I was able to help the community in a way that I had not been able to before. I helped those who we don’t see very often at friends, but still play a big role in this community. I was able to take away a sense of a accomplishment by helping the parents. We were able to help at one of the biggest events of the new school year. With the year now closing down, I look back and remember how I helped get it started.
