									COMM SERVE-BULLETIN 9-19-08

Here’s what came across the service desk this week…

This is the second of (maybe) weekly “e-bulletins” from the Christian Community Service office. These
bulletins are designed to keep you posted on some of the latest opportunities and news in community
service. Please check out the community service website for further updates and
information. (

                NOTE: The following events can serve to fulfill part or all of the school service requirement.

~~ St. Vincent de Paul Society "Friends of the Poor" Walk

no registration fee; donations are accepted, also via St. Barnabas parish in Portsmouth

~~ “Memory Walk” for Alzheimer’s (Roger Williams Park):

~~ "The mission of Kids to Kids is to provide kids in the US with a way to
help kids in the developing world achieve their athletic, artistic, and educational aspirations." Some
students may be considering a project supporting this group.

~~ Potter Animal Shelter orientation?
An orientation is required to volunteer at Potter League (animal shelter). One may be
scheduled especially for the Abbey, if there is enough interest. Many Form IV students have
indicated an interest in Potter League - please let Dr. Billings know if you would like to attend
an orientation. Scheduling will hopefully be 6:30-7:30pm some evening.
