Westfield D.C. Adventure students give back to the VFW
Recently, Westfield stu-dents that are taking part in the Washington, D.C. Adventure program lent a hand at the Neenah Valley VFW Post 6003 Christmas party in Oxford.
The VFW Post 6003 and the Auxiliary group have been enthusiastic supporters of the D.C. Adventure program and have made generous donations to the group to help defray the cost of each student’s trip. As a way of Westfield expressing their gratitude for their generosity, D.C. students and several parents and family members volunteered to help out at their Christmas party by filling waters and coffees, bussing tables, wiping tables, and washing dishes. The students worked hard throughout the evening and enjoyed getting to know some of the veterans and the members of the Auxiliary. An important lesson the school is trying to teach students is to help them understand the importance of giving back to their community and to the organizations who so generously sponsor their trip.
In the coming months, D.C. Adventure students will be assisting the Westfield Lions Club at their Fisheree, helping the VFW Post 6003 with an Easter egg hunt, helping the Coloma Lions Club at the Coloma Chicken Chew, volunteering with Brakebush to pack supplies for the Orphan Grain Train, and working at the Elderly Dinner for the Neshkoro Lions Club.
Westfield students greatly appreciate the generosity of the organizations and businesses that help sponsor their trip and are happy to give back to these groups by volunteering at their functions.
