The group of EMCS students

EMCS gives back to the community

Students take rakes and shovels in hand to clean up Sunny Shores

A group of EMCS students from Ms. Hunters’ Phys. Ed  11/12 class came out to Sunny Shores on the morning of January 20 with rakes, shovels, brooms, and spring bulbs in hand. The students were completing their five hours of community service hours as a part of the Phys. Ed 11/12 course outcomes. Giving back to the community is a valuable lesson: it teaches students to give back to their community — the very people who give them opportunities to enjoy the place where they live. For the last four years these students have had the  opportunity to play mini-golf at Sunny Shores. Why not return the favour, a special “Thank you” for all the times the Sunny Shore owner Andy and his wife have cleared the mini golf course for the students to enjoy.

The students cleared debris from the camp sites, using a leaf blower to clear the mini golf area while other students planted spring bulbs all around the entrance. When the students drive by, they will see their efforts with the colourful showing of spring bulbs.
