Georgia AmeriCorps and Georgia Recovery Corps members from all over the state met at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School on Saturday, Oct. 10 to kick off their 2009-2010 service year. Georgia AmeriCorps members were joined with AmeriCorps VISTA members and AmeriCorps Alums for a fun filled day of service, learning and fellowship. With approximately 450 participants, King Middle was over flowing with individuals with a desire to serve.
Members and volunteers spent the day painting murals, beautifying the school on the inside and out and meeting fellow AmeriCorps members from around the state. The event was organized by the Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism, and members of the staff were overwhelmed by the passion and desire to serve felt throughout the entire day.
A HUGE “thank you” to King Middle for hosting the event, what a wonderful place to serve!
