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.

Service Day 2017: Construction

For PHS, Service Day is a big day. Each year since 2015, students from the junior high and high school partake in various service projects for the school and for the community. This year, one group is planning on completing a large project. Jon Shellenberger, the construction tech teacher, is planning on taking a group of his students to the Orange County Recycling Co-Op here in Paoli.

“I like that the construction trades program is able to do work in the community, and in this case, support a great organization like the recycling cooperative,” said Shellenberger.

At the Orange County Recycling Co-Op, they will get rid of the old roof that is above the cardboard recycling area and replace it with a brand new one. His class has visited the center multiple times now to take measurements. To gather all the supplies needed, they purchased the material from Bender Lumber, also here in Paoli. In all, the cost for the materials will be around $900. However, for or a service project like this, it is a monumental help in the community.
