Students complete dozens of service projects to compete in Day of Service Fair

Monday is the Martin Luther King, Jr holiday and students from all over Cache Valley have been doing all they can to commemorate his message of peace, service and community. Students from elementary through high school have been working on projects to help their communities and compete for honors at Monday’s 2012 Martin Luther King, Jr Day of Service Fair. Event Coordinator Blaire Nelson says the Day of Service Fair is part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative and it is hosted in Cache Valley by America Corps’ vista members from the Center for the School of the Future. Nelson says the students have been working hard for months on their projects. “Some of the schools did a food drive for the students that attend the school,” Nelson says. “Some of them had clothing drives. We had one school that had a letter-writing campaign for troops serving over seas. Another school did some cards for the elderly in retirement homes, trying to bring some cheer.” She says the Martin Luther King Jr, Day of Service Fair will be held at the Logan Community Recreation Center Monday from 3 to 7 p.m. A magic show is scheduled or 4 p.m. and a surprise television personality will be coming as well.
