Community Service Committee
The Senior College Community Service Committee had two meetings during the Spring term. CSC voted to make Window Dressers a CSC project. Window Dressers makes low cost, efficient storm windows for homes that would benefit from saving energy. Senior College members interested in getting windows can contact Corliss Davis, email@example.com.
CSC members also began some organization for 2017 Read Across America. We are seeking individuals to organize and act as host for particular schools in Waldo County. So far, we have hosts for Searsport, Captain Albert Stevens, Nickerson, Morse, Drinkwater, and Appleton. This year we read at eight elementary schools and hope to serve more schools in Waldo County next year, including Ames, Weymouth, Winterport, Islesboro, and Palermo.
Good News! The CSC will launch its own Facebook page in the fall, which may be used by any member of Senior College. How-to instructions will be available for new Facebook users. Through Facebook, SC members can share news, list a need for rides, post items they want to give away or sell, find partners for field trips, receive reminders of SC activities, etc. Our goal is to enhance the sense of community within Senior College. Kathleen Kearns, our resident techy guru, will oversee this project. Thank you Kathleen!
