What is Community Service?

By Jonah

Community service is doing something to help your city. I’m part of a group called “Boys in Action” that does community service and nice things for our citizens. In the past, my group has picked up trash and fed the homeless.

On Tuesday, February 10, 2009, we visited to the senior citizens' home and entertained the people there.

My brother played a song called
Rhapsody Piano, and I played a song called Spanish Nocturne on the piano. Another boy, named Ben, played the guitar.

We also told jokes, trivia, and sang songs. Making the seniors happy gave me a great feeling inside and everyone enjoyed it.

I think it is important to tell about this because it might inspire other people to do nice things.

  4. Jonah,
    I am so proud of your involvement in Boys in Action. When we take time to do things for others, it does make us feel good and it does make a difference. I know they loved your piano playing and we will all look forward to reading about your next event!
