A day of service
Sixty-two Lycoming College students volunteered to assist area families impacted by last September’s flooding on Saturday, Sept. 8, as part of the College’s 9-11 Day of Service.
The group divided into two crews, which traveled to Clarkstown and to Lower Manor Road near Rt. 87. The Clarkstown group contributed to construction and property repair efforts, dry-walling, painting and performing outdoor maintenance. At Lower Manor Road, students removed debris and moldy drywall, took down a shed and back-filled a basement. Volunteers worked from 8 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., even staying productive through several rain showers.
The event was organized by Lycoming’s Community Service Center, which hopes to continue to provide assistance to the areas throughout the year.
Lycoming College also hosted a Service of Remembering and Hope the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 11, on the steps of Long Hall. The candlelight prayer service, sponsored by United Campus Ministry, reflected on the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, with readings and music from members of the College community.
A 9/11 flag memorial on the Quad was sponsored by the Lycoming College Republicans.
