Service Day 2017: Historical Society
For the past two years, students at PHS have participated in Service Day to try and help out the community. October 6 will be the third time students have done this.
U.S history teacher Chris Lindley will be going to the Orange County Historical Society. He and students will be getting a tour and working on cleaning and organizing the basement.
“I have been involved with it for about thirty years and love our local history. Each service day, we have done a project for the Historical Society, and since they always need help, why not do one again,” said Lindley.
Lindley hopes students will take a greater appreciation of our local history and how it connects with the larger history of our nation and state.
Lindley adds that he hopes they will finish the basement and also hopes that the students will feel like they were an asset to their community by offering their help to a local organization.
