George Stevens Academy Hosts 2nd Annual Community Service Fair

Release Date: 04/15/2014

George Stevens Academy (GSA) is hosting its second annual Community Service Fair this Thursday, April 17, 2014.  Organizations from throughout the Blue Hill Peninsula will attend to introduce themselves, explain their mission, and potentially recruit some hard working GSA student-volunteers. 

Representatives from Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, Blue Hill Heritage Trust, Blue Hill Historical Society, Blue Hill Garden Club, WERU, Simmering Pot, the Tree of Life, Blue Hill Peninsula Area Chamber of Commerce and others are scheduled to participate. 

“We are thrilled to be included in this event; it’s a great opportunity for Blue Hill Memorial Hospital to connect with young people, especially those who might be interested in a career in healthcare,” explains community relations manager Kelley Columber.  “We can use student volunteers for outdoor campus projects, summer events including the 3rd Annual Women’s Wellness Fair and the BHMH Fun Run, and other areas throughout the hospital.”

All students will gather for an assembly focused on the importance of community service and volunteerism.  Rob McCall, pastor for First Congregational Church of Blue Hill will be addressing the students with a message stressing the power of kindness, the significance of offering your time and talent, and giving back to your community.  “This community is filled with people who are generous with both their time and money,” shares Dean of Students Libby Rosemeier.  “We want to introduce the importance of community service and to provide an opportunity for students to make connections with non-profit organizations in their community that depend on volunteerism in order to carry out their mission.”

For those interested in participating next year please contact Libby Rosemeier at 374-2120 or email l.rosemeier@georgestevens.info or Kelley Columber at 374-3418 or email kelley.columber@bhmh.org.
