On Saturday, May 2, Chewonki Semester Students branched out into the community to work in teams together with local nonprofit organizations for a community day of service. This year, students worked with L.O.C.A.L. Garden, Tedford Housing, DRA Community Garden and the SVCA. The community day of service is an expansion of the service work that students do every week at St. Philips. “Every Thursday throughout the school semester, students head over to St Philips’ Help Yourself Shelf to help out,” explained Lilly Betke-Brunswick, Chewonki Semester School Math teacher. “They set out food for the evening, pick up and stock shelves. They always enjoy working together and getting to know members of the community.” In past years, Chewonki Semester Students have worked with Hidden Valley Nature Center, Wiscasset Green, Lincoln County Animal Shelter, Coastal Humane Society, Goranson Farm, Wiscasset Public Library, and harvested veggies for the Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.
