District 7390 Day of Service - April 21
The District 7390 Day of Service is soon upon us! While some clubs will be operating on slightly different dates because of other calendar conflicts, the District has a total of 14 clubs participating on or around April 21. We hoped for greater participation in the Day of Service, but we know our clubs complete service projects in their communities throughout the year.  Which is a wonderful thing!
A wide range of activities are planned for the Day of Service. They include tree planting (Perry County, Mechanicsburg and others), community clean up (Gettysburg), ball field preparations for Little League (Elizabethtown), working with Habitat for Humanity on a house renovation (Lancaster Penn Square), planting a community garden (Red Lion-Dallastown), and making blankets (York). Of particular note is the working relationship between three clubs - Mechanicsburg-North, Mechanicsburg and West Shore – who will plant 100 trees in Veteran’s Park.
We are grateful for all the clubs who chose to participate in this Day of Service. All are to be commended for continuing to put Service Above Self!
