Service Saturday 2017Saturday, April 22nd
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Consistent with the institution's Wesleyan tradition and John
Wesley's commitment to understanding "the world is our parish,"
LaGrange College sponsors a campus-wide Service Saturday each semester. The Spring
2017 event will focus on Earth Day and "The Great American Clean Up"
as the college's students, faculty and staff dedicate a morning to assist our
local Keep Troup Beautiful organization.
Keep Troup Beautiful encourages behavioral changes and individual
responsibility through educational activities which result in a cleaner Troup
Keep Troup Beautiful was organized in the early 1990’s by a
group of LaGrange/Troup County citizens interested in recycling and
At 9:30 a.m. April 22nd, the campus community will
gather on the college's residential quad for a prayer and brief introduction to
the day's activities. If inclement weather occurs that morning, we will meet in
Mariotti Gym. You will receive an email if the meeting location is changed.
From there, we will separate into groups who will each then go to one of the
work site locations. A liaison from Student Engagement has worked with each
location to determine their needs.
Transportation will be provided by the college to each location.
You are encouraged to ride the bus because parking at each location is limited;
however, you are allowed to drive yourself and/or carpool with a signed waiver.
Additionally, should our number of registered volunteers exceed the number that
can be supported at the community locations, the college will have a project on
campus to ensure that all can participate in this campus-wide day of service.
In the event of rain, please check your email for an update that
morning. Because these activities are outside projects, it is possible the day
could be rained out. If this happens, Service Saturday will be rescheduled. You
will receive an email with this information and further details.
Please feel free to contact Katie Mosley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need
additional information. Thank you.
