Little Man entered a contest to be a youth ambassador for a local aquarium....and his entry was chosen to represent the aquarium at a lake clean-up!
When we got to the lake we all got our volunteer t-shirts, and Hubby and I both received passes to the aquarium. We spent a couple of hours hiking the trails around the lake and cleaning up trash we found. It was a great family outing.
Little Man felt proud to be part of the event.
We filled a bucket with trash.
In addition to winning an annual pass to the aquarium, he also received the goodie bag above. It was a great experience for him...he wrote his winning statement himself and saw how volunteering helped.
