• Victory For Victoria • Adopt-A-Child (Christmas 2005) • Second Harvest Food Bank Car Wash • Humane Society of Valdosta Car Wash Victory For Victoria Victory For Victoria Info • Victory For Victoria was held for Victoria Newsome who had battled medulloblastoma, the most common primary central nervous system tumor in children. • Valwood School held a Victory For Victoria fundraiser on Saturday, November 12, 2005. • It consisted of a 5k run, 10k run, and a one mile fun run or walk. • All participants received a T-shirt and goody bag! • All net proceeds from the Victory for Victoria benefited the Newsome family and Victoria’s memorial service! During Christmas 2005, the Freshman Year Experience class got together and brought in wrapped toys. We donated the toys to children who unfortunately, were not able to have a Christmas like many other children. It is kind of similar to “Toys For Tots,” which is a nationwide project that is done annually. Both projects have brought the joy of Christmas to needy children and family every year. Second Harvest Food Bank “Car Wash” Second Harvest Food Bank “Car Wash” A couple of students from my Freshman Year Experience class got together and had a car wash at the Red Lobster on St.Augustine Road, near Valdosta Colonial Mall. Even though there were only about eight people there, it was actually a lot of fun. We decided to donate all of the money to the Second Harvest Food Bank! Humane Society of Valdosta “Car Wash” April 22, 2006 was suppose to be the BIG day, but “Mother Nature” decided to take over. We were suppose to have our 2nd Car Wash at Steak-n- Shake. The money was suppose to be donated to the Humane Society of Valdosta. We tried AGAIN on Sunday, but things still didn’t work out as planned! I feel kind of bad… I really wanted to help the animals! Better LUCK next time huh? Humane Society of Valdosta Information • The Humane Society is a large group of caring volunteers whose main objective is to improve the lives of animals in Lowndes County and surrounding areas. • The main objectives of the society were to improve the lives of animals and put an end to pet overpopulation. •The Humane Societies slogan, “We Speak For Those Who Cannot Speak For Themselves”, expresses their desire to be a voice for the animals in our community through education, outreach, and advocacy. SL Mason Elementary School “Field Day” Tug-A-War Parachute Game Me and Erica Frisbee Game Bear Crawl More Info About “Field Day” On April 28, 2006, me and a couple of my classmates decided to go help out at S.L.Mason Elementary school for their “Field Day.” The event was held at Valdosta Middle School from 9am until 1pm. All of us went to separate stations to help out. I helped at station 5 which was called “Texas.” The kids played a game called the “Lone Star Toss,” which consisted of tossing rings onto any of the 5 cones that happened to be in the shape of a star. They were divided into three lines, and had to compete to see which team would get the most rings on the cones in 3 minutes. At first they seemed to be a little frustrated, but after a while they got the hang of it. After participating in various Community Service projects, I concluded things aren’t as hard as they seem. A lot of people choose not to do community service because it seems so time consuming, but after you get into it, it is not as bad as it seems. I actually think I enjoyed participating in these community service projects. You meet so many new people and you get to socialize with many people who you probably would have never spoken with.
