On Nov. 14, Leaders for Tomorrow first year students visited some local cultural treasures as part of Cultural and Community Resources day.
The class got a behind-the-scenes look at new exhibit areas at the History Museum of Hood River County, which has undergone major renovations over the past year (see page B5 for more).
Students also received an exclusive guided tour at Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum, where they learned more about antique aeroplanes and automobiles than they could have imagined, according to advisor Kristin Reese.
“Not only did we get to see the different planes and automobiles, but we got to learn about their role in history,” observed one leader.
Non-profit organizations were given an opportunity to meet with the LFT class to share information about the work they do and how the students can get involved through volunteering.
A variety of causes including Adopt-a-dog, Heart of Hospice and Columbia Gorge Ecology Institute, were represented as well as civic and service groups such as the Elks and Lions clubs.
Learning about opportunities to get involved in the community was the class’s favorite part of the day, according to Reese. For more information, contact Reese at 541.806.0278 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
