Letter to the Editor: Sharing something that went so right

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

To the Editor:

In a world where we are quick to judge and to point out something wrong, I wanted to share something that went so right.

The Richmond Beach Community Association had its annual Halloween Carnival on Saturday. The students that came to help set up on Friday were amazing. Each one was hard working, respectful and took direction seamlessly.

Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, another wave of students showed up early on Saturday and stayed very late: setting up, decorating, running games, assisting families, helping, tearing down, cleaning up, moving heavy things, the list goes on and on.

There were many comments from adults about how great the student volunteers were this year. It is not the actions a child does when you are there, it is what they do and how they conduct themselves when you are not there that counts.

It was a pleasure working alongside these wonderful young people. They should be proud of themselves.
