Clubs volunteer at Cherry Blossom Festival

April 2, 2015

On Saturday March 28, the Korean Student Association (KSA) partnered with the Science and Engineering Club to volunteer at the Cherry Blossom Festival. The girls endured the cold, 30 degree day to assist children at the annual festival which draws thousands of people locally, nationally, and even internationally. At the kite tent, the Madeira volunteers helped children build and design kites. The girls could sense the excitement and enthusiasm of every child they helped. "Kite creation was a cost free activity and was a great way to give back to the community, especially young children," said volunteer Carson Peters '16.

Despite cold temperatures (some went to the emergency tent to keep warm), Madeira girls persisted by functioning in disaster and finishing in style.

Special thanks to Ms. Walton and Ms. Minchew for arranging the event and providing transportation.
