IN WINTERFEST - 02/13/06
The cold winds and freezing
temperatures on Saturday, January 28, did little to deter the enthusiasm
of Trinity students serving at Lake Katherine's 2006 Winterfest. Freshmen
Aaron Carpenter, Ethan VerVelde, Brittney Hackbart, and Lindsay Ebels were
among 20 area high school and college students who helped families enjoy
the outdoors together, despite the cold.
"It was our pleasure to work
with a fine group of young people from Trinity Christian College," said
Marian Sinkus, program coordinator. "Our management, staff, and adult volunteers
made comments about the helpfulness of all the Trinity students. They were
focused, polite, and positive," she added.
The student volunteers managed
the entire event and participated in activities throughout the day, such
as candle-dipping, a wild animal show, and corn-shucking.
"We had a good time," said
Carpenter. "I appreciated the opportunity to see kids' faces as they learned
and took part in nature-related activities."
