Local students participated in Service Day on Wednesday, May 14, by cleaning their city, county parks and assisting local nonprofit organizations.

Service Day allows students at Bethany Christian High School to learn the value of serving others.

Some students rode their bicycles and cleaned up trash along city paths. Other students canoed down the Elkhart river and picked up litter, including toys, softballs, glass and a toilet. Senior Lynea Brubacher Kaethler said they even found a dead turtle while clearing the river of trash.

“That was a reminder of why we do it. Trash is harmful to our environment,” Kaethler said.

Other students planted a garden for Church Community Services in Elkhart, helped build a house for Habitat for Humanity in Bristol and assisted other nonprofit organizations with other projects.
