Nearly four dozen Richmond Hill High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets performed their last official Cadet Command requirement Saturday at the Fresh Air Home (FAH) in Tybee Island.
During the summer months, FAH is open for eight weeks serving more than 92 disadvantage children and or families, who can spend 10 days at a time at no cost to enjoy playing on the beach, supervised games on the camp grounds, crafts, music activities, Bible stories and field trips.
“This was a great location to spend their Saturday, knowing that disadvantage children and families will be benefiting from this location and they helped make it better,” said Luis Roland, senior Army instructor for RHHS JROTC.
The cadets helped move furniture, cleaned the premises, painted doors, planted multiple flowers and overall beautification of the area.
“With this activity, our cadets have accomplished over 9,000 hours of community service throughout this school year, most likely a record in the Georgia JROTC schools,” Roland said. “What a way to finish our year by serving and showing our students that they can make a positive difference with their involvement.”
