Make A Difference Day

On Saturday, October 23rd, 2004, the USS Endeavour partnered with The Anderson Federation of Teachers to make a difference at a variety of organizations in Madison County.  We volunteered to do everything from wash windows at the homes of the elderly to completing a variety of tasks at the Second Harvest Food Bank, and Wilson Boys and Girls Club of Anderson. 
Many members worked hard at the Boys club, but I must mention Lisa, Sierra, and Lexi Wehmanen, Cyndi and Misty Jackson and Samantha Smith played the major role in bagging 40,000 pounds of potatoes for distribution to the needy.  Needless to say, the Endeavour made a difference in the community.  But more importantly, it made a difference in us.  We worked hard, had fun, and met a lot of new people. It is hard to describe the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment we took home that night.

To Boldly bag potatoes like they have never been bagged before... After installing the legs, the counter top is ready to go. "Fits like a glove!" Almost ready for the computers.
