Cedarbrook Students Help a Neighbor

When students participate in community service, they learn to recognize different ways to serve people in their community.

In late April, students at Cedarbrook Adventist Christian School in Port Hadlock, Wash., helped a lady in the community who had moss and algae growing on her vinyl fence. The fence needed washing, and the upper-grade students stepped in to help their elderly neighbor.

For the 17 students, it seemed like an impossible task when they saw how much fence there was to clean, but they persevered, and two-and-a-half hours later, the fence was sparkling white again.

The neighbor was so thankful for the Cedarbrook students who took time to help her. "This is wonderful, thank you," she said when the students finished their task.
