Give your time to others on Sept. 11

Volunteer to make a difference

Coordinators for Page’s annual September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance are asking community members to take part in something special for the event’s 15th anniversary.
This year, they are challenging individuals, local organizations and businesses, “to take the opportunity to serve an organization or person in our community.”
The group suggests volunteering at any of Page’s numerous non-profit service organizations such as the Page Animal Adoption Agency, Cancer Outreach, the Circle of Page, CUDDLE, the Page Public Library, the Family Bargain Center, the 4-H Club, and the Salvation Army.
Those interested are asked to encourage individual acts of service, or to organize one large activity for a family, organization or business to take part in.
The usual ceremony and gathering will take place in the John C. Memorial Park at 4 p.m. and last until 6:30. Local service organizations will have tables set up to share information on the type of services they provide. Don’t hesitate to use the time to ask how to volunteer or donate.
The evening will end with hymns and a closing prayer for the services done.
Coordinators ask of those who take up the call to pay it forward, to anonymously share the service they performed by placing a short written description in a box available at the event. The acts will be published here in the Lake Powell Chronicle, as well as with the National Day of Service organization.
For information, contact Debbie Winlock at (928) 645–4272.
