Putt One in the Hole
Every year, Bellaire’s Nature Discovery Center holds an annual Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival to help children and their parents get into the spirit of fall and Halloween.
The center also needs volunteers for such an event, and Alexander-Smith thinks very highly of volunteering, so our Volunteer Service Club’s President, Vice President, and Secretary put together a group activity for the students to participate in this festival. Mostly, the Volunteer Service Club helped out in a Putt Putt course for the children. The day was filled with many laughs, encouragement, and very sincere friendliness.
As senior Shannon Nguyen said, "It was pretty fun. I liked how happy the kids looked when they made the goals. I also think we all got a lot closer and had some good laughs. We were able to see another side of each other compared to the studious side we usually see."
Personally, I had a lot of fun doing this activity. Encouraging little kids and seeing their faces light up as they hit the ball into the hole made me so happy. The kids were all so cute and dressed up as different princesses and heroes for Halloween. I felt that everyone from ASA who volunteered grew closer together than before. I noticed that we talked a lot more than normal, as it's not as hard trying to start up a conversation when it’s not about school.
