Wednesday, Apr. 28, Lynnville-Sully Schools will be holding their Second Annual Community Service Day. This is an important day for the students and staff of Lynnville-Sully, one in which they learn the significant lesson of giving back to the community and to others not as blessed as we are here in Iowa.

Last year’s service projects included raking, cleaning up brush, painting, fixing up the ball field and dugouts, visiting elderly in nursing homes, building and planting containers for area towns, and much more.

Lynnville-Sully has set a goal of packaging 25,000 meals on Apr. 28,  this year's Community Service Day. Food can only be packaged and shipped that has been purchased in advance. This represents a dollar amount of $3,750 that the school needs to raise to purchase the supplies for packaging the meals. These meals will be packaged in the high school gym. When the packaging is completed they will be returned to Des Moines to the Meals from the Heartland Center. From there they will be shipped to Haiti.

L-S would like to involve the entire Lynnville-Sully area in their efforts. If you have any ideas for service projects, please contact Gelene Evans at 594-4445 x106. If you would like to donate to the Meals from the Heartland project, L-S welcomes your donation and thank you sincerely. Donations are being accepted through Apr. 19. All donations are tax deductible and can be sent to: Meals from the Heartland, ATTN: Teri Bowlin, Lynnville-Sully Schools, PO Box 310, Sully, IA 50251. Thank you again for your support.
