Helpful Students Volunteer For Proserpine Show

The annual Proserpine show went ahead last Friday, and 13 helpful students from Proserpine State High School volunteered to help the Proserpine Lions Club in serving food at the show.
The Lions Club are a group of individuals who get involved with humanitarian efforts locally, nationally, and internationally.
The Proserpine Lions Club had members away due to illness and an annual conference, and the 13 fantastic students jumped in to help the 45 volunteers on the day. The students were offered the opportunity through their school, where it was displayed on the school’s noticeboard. The students were ages 14-18 and anyone at the school could apply.
Mia Vloedmans, one of the kind students who offered her time up on the Show Day, said unlike the other students she was contacted directly to participate in the volunteering. She also expressed her enjoyment of the day.
“It was a great experience working and giving back to the community”.
“I would definitely do it again”.
Mia also explained how she really enjoyed being around the big group of volunteers that day and that the Lions Club volunteers gave lots of helpful mentoring to them and were very supportive.
Mia continued, saying that the volunteer work was mainly done in three-hour shifts, saying that her shift ran from “12:30pm- 3:30pm”.
Mia encourages everyone to “get involved with the Lions Club” as they “do a lot for the community”.
Well done to all the 13 tremendous students who spent their Show Day volunteering and helping out the community.
