On Thursday September 10, the 8th Grade Blue Team for Riverview Middle School ventured out into the Huntington and Warren communities to perform community service. Our team of 92 students split into four different groups and was able to go to four different locations. Miss Whiteman (along with trusty helper Nate Hasty) went to the river bank behind the Marsh store and worked on cleaning up weeds, underbrush, and fallen logs. The purpose of this trip was to help clear the Lime City Trail. They worked in conjunction with Mr. Colin Bullock of the Huntington Water Department.
Mrs. Hiple and Miss Blake took their group to the Forks of the Wabash to aid Jim Hollar in some fall cleanup activities. Rocks, brush, and debris were cleaned from the new paved trail and moved to a burn pile. An area of riverbank was also cleared of fallen timber and debris.
Mr. Abbott and Andy Vaught took a group of young men and women to the Town of Warren to help cleanup the Civic Center. Curt Day had a crew of six people that they aided in cleaning windows, tables, picking up trash, and emptying the basement of years worth of old debris. The gentlemen also filled a dump truck full of debris and stacked several additional piles of material outside of the center so that they could be hauled away at a later date.
Mrs. King and Mrs. Bigelow took about fifteen young ladies to the Warren Methodist Home to work with Mrs. Jody Stanley. They were able to help the employees at the home in transporting the residents to the chapel so that they could see a performance that afternoon. This was an enlightening experience for the students because they gained some valuable insights and advice through their conversations with the elder members of home.
