Did you know, that in the past three years alone, there has been over 17,500 hours of non-military National Service completed in our community? You read that right, 17,500 hours. That means programs like AmeriCorps VISTA, Montana FoodCorps, and Montana Conservation Corps service members have dedicated hours, weeks, months, and years of their lives to positively benefiting Carbon County.
Join us on April 1st at 10:00am at the Community Foundation when current national service members in Red Lodge will be discussing the impacts of their National Service terms with Mayor Ed Williams over coffee. BONUS: The Mayor will also be signing a proclamation to be hung at City Hall and the Foundation stating the importance of National Service in our community. All supporters of these programs are encouraged to sign as well!
Here is a sneak peak at some of the great things National Service members have done to positively impact our community:
-Building the Lily Pad Lake Trail up the West Rosebud
-Fencing Double Ditch Dog Park
-Creating and maintaining the Youth Garden at Old Roosevelt School
-Creating the Carbon County Resource Directory
-Providing education and job training programs to local Veterans
-Creating Youth Mentor programs for Roosevelt Middle School students
-Creating a centralized, county-wide calendar
-And SOOO much more!
See you April 1st at 10:00am at the Community Foundation!
