At a semester program called HMI, I helped organize and recycle the recyclable waste. Every week, the blue bins around campus would overflow. A few students and I volunteered to help empty the recycling. Before leaving for a recycling plant, we would have to organize all the different types of recyclables. As an example, we would have to organize all the number one plastics together and put them in their own trash bag. We would organize before we left, to minimize the time spent at the plant. The drive to the plant was about fifteen minutes. At the plant, we would follow the signs telling us where to dump the different types of recyclables. We would then drive on back to school.
A couple of month’s ago I partook in the Martin Luther King Jazz Concert. The MLK Jazz Concert is a performance that aims to help the Friends Shelter. The concert has been around for at least twenty years and is basically run by Bob Rosen. The concert was a great success. There’s nothing like playing music for a good cause! Jazz 1 opened the show with a few tunes. We played well and got to talk to a few of the experienced players. After us, the Meeting House Big Band performed and they were truly amazing! It was great to see Bob playing. I was very glad to help out in preventing homelessness. It really sucks to see people without homes on the street. It’s great that Friend’s does their share in aiding this cause by providing fourteen warm bed’s.
