Jordyn's Legacy

In ECS this quarter, we were asked to volunteer. I volunteered for my parish and my family, helping set up and take down, and eased my parent's burden. First, helping out with my church had a lot of benefits, like the fact that I wasn't bored at all. Instead of sitting in church forcing myself to pay attention, I could get up and walk around (when it was appropriate). It made it easier for me to actually listen to what was being said, and I felt happy about being able to help. Second, when I helped out at my house, I noticed how my parents were in better moods. We got done with all of the chores much faster so that we could watch a movie as a family. There was a drawback to helping- I had less time to do my math homework. (Even though I ended up finishing it.) Finally, I plan to give back to my community by helping out with the K of C (eventually) and helping whenever is possible. If I ever find out about an organization that needs help, I will try to be a value to them. If I make a lot of money, I'll take a week off and help out at organizations and be like a real life Undercover Millionaire. That was my volunteer experience!
Mr. Agamenoni is very fast at remembering strange stories of his past.... either that or he's SUPER creative.
Deacon Bill and Father Jay in the backround
