If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? In my Communities class, I have the opportunity to be involved in the planning and implementation of the Veteran's Day Assembly and reception. This is a huge event at our school that is put on every year. We welcome many Veterans and their families. It is very intriguing to listen to the Veterans tell their stories. My grandpa is a Marine and comes every year. It is very rewarding to be a part of this very special day to honor these Veterans!
