What a difference a day makes

Daily News staff report
Summit High volleyball players Karleigh Schurr, left, and Emily Cardamon not only are a presence on the volleyball court, but also community players as they helped Keystone Science School field instructor Josh Boisvert erect assign at the school Saturday morning as participants in the annual Make A Difference Day.

Area residents could have spent a beautiful Saturday morning playing or relaxing, but hundreds decided to lend a hand and help their community.

About 450 citizens – young and old – joined organizers of Make A Difference Day to aid nonprofits, community facilities and schools with old-fashioned elbow grease. The event, a national day of community service, is organized by Summit County’s Americorps Promise Fellow, Sherry Gareau, staff from the Summit Prevention Alliance and other county service offices. The fifth annual pitching-in event sent volunteers to more than 30 sites around the county, where they painted, raked, picked up trash, tore down fences and performed trail maintenance, among other tasks. Organizers thanked volunteers with a barbecue at the Summit Stage bus barns in Frisco and music from Summit High School’s jazz band.
