Lakeland's incoming class of freshmen and transfer students spent this past Friday learning firsthand about the college's strong commitment to community service through our annual "Building Bridges" initiative.

The students, sporting bright orange T-shirts, were divided into eight groups and bused to various non-profit organizations around the area. Then they went to work. For two hours, the students performed various tasks at the following locations:

  • Camp Anokijig
  • Camp Evelyn
  • The Boys & Girls Clubs of Sheboygan County (Sheboygan and Sheboygan Falls)
  • Garden of Weedin, which provides fresh produce for Nourish,a group that collaborates with local farmers, organizations and volunteers to create and share fresh, local food with struggling families in the community
  • Above & Beyond Children's Museum
  • The John Michael Kohler ArtsCenter
  • Walla Hi County Park

After their hard work was completed, the newest Muskies were bused to Fireman's Park in Elkhart Lake, where they enjoyed hot ham sandwiches, games, dancing and karaoke until the sun began to set on a great day.
