Advisory Service Project Benefits Veterans

As part of our new Advisory Program we hope to provide meaningful community service projects.  It is our intention to keep the community service local whenever possible.  The December 3rd Advisory certainly met the stated ambition of local and meaningful community service.On December 3rd each Advisory “adopted” an active member of the armed forces. In total we “adopted” 35 members of the armed forces.  All of the Veterans selected either graduated from GD or currently reside in the towns of Groton or Dunstable.  Mr. O’Conner’s design class created decorative cards with a military theme for all members of the class to sign. Students brought in items to be included in the care package and they decorated the boxes. Below are a few pictures of the care packages that will be sent.  If you have a Twitter account you can view more pictures by using the #gdadvisory2015.

We also included an original GD camouflage hat with each care package, which we are also selling to the public for $15.  Money from the sale of the hats will be used to fund a scholarship that will be awarded to a deserving GD graduate who enlists in the armed forces. If you would like to order a hat please complete the order form.
