This afternoon, President Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, before rolling up his sleeves to join local SCA members in service.
In his address, the President said:
We need your service, right now, at this moment in history. I’m not going to tell you what your role should be; that’s for you to discover. But I’m asking you to stand up and play your part. I’m asking you to help change history’s course. Put your shoulder up against the wheel. And if you do, I promise you – your life will be richer, our country will be stronger, and someday, years from now, you may remember it as the moment when your own story and the American story converged, when they came together, and we met the challenges of our new century.
Stay tuned here on the blog and on SCA's Twitter page for more pictures from the service event. Meanwhile, check out the White House blog for more information about the Serve America Act and to tell your story of service.
Saturday, April 18, found many SCA staffers at work even earlier than usual! In honor of Earth Day, we hosted an event for the local community here in Charlestown, New Hampshire. The event included cell phone recycling, #5 plastic recycling, tours of SCA's new LEED-certified building, recycled craft projects, and an environmental trivia game. Students from Fall Mountain Regional High School demonstrated their worm composting project, offered up free worms for use in the garden, and showed off their own recycled craft projects. Check out the pictures from the event!
