Pioneer Kids Day of Service

Students in the 6th grade from Farmington and Kaysville came together to give service in the Pioneer Kids Day at This is the Place Park on May 20th. Joyce Ellertson was the Chair of the event, and she helped plan the service project of pulling weeds all around the Park to beautify and clean up. All the students who volunteered came ready with gloves, trowels, shovels, and smiles. We bagged the weeds and then crew picked up the bags, and there were a lot! These kids know how to work hard. 

The students volunteered for a couple of hours, and then ate packed lunches on the lawn. We didn't pack lunch as a Royalty, but our Adviser, Judy Binns, spoiled us with doughnuts from the Social Hall.. Yum!

We were sad that our Queen, Baylee, was not able to attend the event. She sent her spirit of service and gratitude while she was helping others in need. 

As Days of '47 Royalty, we love to be dressed up and looking pretty, but we also love to serve and get our hands dirty.
