Last week, students of Watford City High School (W.C.H.S.) took the opportunity to be of service in different areas of McKenzie County by participating in a community clean-up project at 32 different locations.
“It’s always nice not to be in the school for the umpteenth time,” said Juliana Adams, a Watford City High School student and community clean-up volunteer, as she held a trash bag open for a classmate.
“Where we’re confined to our desks,” she jokingly added.
As student volunteers from W.C.H.S. seemed to be delighted for a change of pace from the usual routine of their school work, those on the receiving end of the community clean-up were equally as delighted for some extra help.
“We heard about this program from one of our church members,” says Glen Beard, First Lutheran Church member.
Friday morning, a handful of students could be found scattered throughout the premises of First Lutheran Church, tending to different projects, mainly outside.
