01/24/13 Sixty-eight members of the Plymouth High School Key Club joined hundreds of thousands of Americans in observing “a day on, not a day off” on Monday, January 21. To contribute to the national Martin Luther King Day of Service, students volunteered for organizations and schools across the Plymouth community.
Key Clubbers lent their time and talents to the Boys and Girls Club, the fire department, the Marshall County Museum, Pilgrim Manor, Miller’s Merry Manor, the Neighborhood Center, the Humane Society, Washington Discovery Center, Webster Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, Menominee Elementary, Riverside Intermediate Center, and St. Michael’s School.
Students and adults report that they worked hard at all kinds of tasks; cleaning and organizing closets and museum displays, walking and cleaning up after animals, assisting with general cleaning and maintenance tasks, washing and waxing emergency vehicles, cleaning and painting a room, playing games and socializing with retirees, reading to students, creating bulletin boards, and numerous other tasks.
These high school students honor the legacy of Dr. King by stepping up to offer service that advances his dream of opportunity for everyone. We believe that working to build the community of Plymouth improves lives and empowers us all.
