Lawrence High School seniors spend a Friday picking up rakes, shovels and spent hours of cleaning in the towns which make up School Administrative District 49.

In an effort to assist towns with chores, the classmates helped complete several tasks for Albion, Benton, Clinton and Fairfield.

In Albion, students raked leaves, picked up sticks, and shoveled sand left from the winter. The work was done around the Besse Building and the Albion Public Library.

In Benton, seniors raked, mulched, shoveled sand left from the winter, and helped carry heavy materials from the Town Office, which needed to be disposed of.

In Fairfield, town officials asked for assistance with picking up of debris and raking in Maplewood Cemetery. Students spent the morning filling large garbage bags with leaves, sticks, and other materials left behind.

Senior Class President Madison Lessner shared it was an opportunity for students to give back to their communities and have some fun with peers while they completed their work for the morning. Lessner continued by saying she hoped the high school would continue to offer this time to future classes, according to a news release from the school.
