Over the weekend I helped prepare the St. Thomas Church garden for the winter. I helped spread mulch on the garden beds and remove the leaves from the garden area. Knowing that what was to be grown was going to families in need of cheap and accessible food made me feel like I was helping fight a bigger cause.
For a week in August, the boys and girls varsity soccer teams took a trip to Tobago. While in Tobago, we continued our preseason training and participated in a small tournament. The trip also gave us the opportunity to host a soccer clinic for the local players ranging from age 7 to 17. At the end of the session, we gave cleats, shirts, soccer balls, shin-guards, water bottles, and draw-string bags to the players. I enjoyed the service component of the trip very much because it gave me the chance to possibly make somebody’s day better and in doing so, I had fun training the local soccer players.
