The second volunteer opportunity I had was at McDaniel. It was a fantastic morning that had been planned since August. Not only was there a band there were also speakers talking about the march on Washington. Afterwards the children who attended did a service learning project.
The most fun to help with was the service learning project. First I supervised children making cards for elderly people. This was very exciting, the children were more inspired than I was. They included nonviolence quotes inside of the cars. While making the cards I was able to meet and talk to many people from the Westminster community from younger generations.
After the card making and band was over we also watched the inauguration. It was wonderful to have such a powerful event on an already powerful day. Cleaning up the glitter from the cards was the most difficult part, but it was all worth it. I am lucky that I was able to have several volunteer opportunities for MLK day.
