Nicholas Markus Service reflection: Helping out at Friends big FAT service day

On April 19th I decided to come into school on a Saturday to help out with the Friends big FAT service day. Immediately I found my self working with others in maintaining the tolerance garden in Stuyvesant park. First we weeded the plants and picked up any little pieces of trash we found, and then we added mulch to the soil to help the flowers grow. After a couple long hard hours working we were all treated to lunch by the school, and afterwards I spent some time decorating cards for Birthday in a box.

It made me incredibly happy to help make a small part of our city even more beautiful by helping maintain the flowers in Stuyvesant park. It was also quite satisfying to help make a few children’s birthdays slightly happier even if they are less fortunate than I am.

  1. Markus, Thank you for working in the park on service day. Believe me when I say you did more than just “make a few children’s Birthday parties slightly happier.” The flowers in that park make EVERONE’S days a LOT happier. Thank you for doing this.
