Morgan Estates Visits: A small group of chapter members visit the Morgan Estates Assisted Living Community in Geneseo twice a month to play games with the residents. Please contact Matthew Siegenthaler (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join us in our visits during the Spring 2011 semester.
Geneseo Food Drive: In October, Golden Key Members partnered with members of the Geneseo Men’s and Women’s Track Teams and the HEROS mentoring program for a door-to-door food drive. Items were collected for the local Geneseo Food Pantry.
Mt. Morris Essay Contest: In December, the chapter sponsored an essay contest aimed at promoting literacy among elementary school students. The students of Mrs. Sondra Bean’s fourth grade class at Mt. Morris Elementary School wrote essays on the topic of their favorite book. Winners of the contest received a cash prize and a copy of the book that they wrote about. Congratulations to all of the participants on an excellent job!
Regional Summit: The chapter sent three student representatives to the Golden Key Regional summit in Niagara Falls, Ontario the weekend of 02/04/2011 – 02/06/2011.
Foodlink Collabortation: We were fortunate to have the opportunity to join with the University of Rochester Golden Key Chapter for a volunteer project at the Foodlink food bank in Rochester, NY this past spring.
Better World Books Drive: Thank you to everyone who donated books to our book drive this year! We collected 25 boxes full of books that will be sold to support the Books for Africa literacy initative and our local chapter.
