Community Service Event - Clinton Rotary Amber Alert

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2013) Permanent link   All Posts
 Brooklyn Andreasen Each cadet is required to fulfill a certain number of hours of volunteer service in the community and within the Academy each semester. To help cadets achieve this, Hotel Company sends out an email to the Corps with volunteering opportunities each week. I happened to see that the Clinton Rotary Club was to be hosting a booth for Amber Alert at the Hartford Convention Center. This sounded like a great program to help with, so I signed up, and this past Sunday I worked the event with the Rotarian in charge and four other cadets. The premise of the event was simple, tell parents about the Amber Alert program and register their children in the database. However, after speaking with the Rotary member present, I really saw the significance of the program. The club was passionate about their mission to register children and to inform parents of any updated information. As I am not a parent I cannot fully appreciate the importance of such a program but I certainly respect its goals, achievements, and the people who help make it possible.
