“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”–Mahatma Gandhi Lantern is an organization that is committed to the service of others. In the past, we have painted some houses and demolished others for the Housing Partnership of the Fox Cities; volunteered at “Have a Heart,” a benefit sponsored by the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin; held “service retreats” at Blubolz Nature Preserve; gone on a scavenger hunt for items for the Emergency Shelter; hosted “Kid’s Fair”; and helped out at the Community Clothes Closet. These, of course, are only a few of the many exciting volunteer opportunities Lantern has to offer.
The most unique thing about Lantern is that it brings together people who are passionate about volunteering. Our primary goal is to help others in any way we can. This is achieved through working together as a group. Volunteering on one’s own is great, but it can be even better when one is working with others who share the desire to help others.
Meetings are held every Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. in the Colman lounge. They usually last between fifteen and thirty minutes.
We will hold a regular “business meeting”(going over upcoming events, reflection on past events, etc.) every other week, and the “off week” meetings will be dedicated to doing some sort of “in-meeting” service project (e.g. making Christmas cards for Pioneer Village Residents).
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our group! If you would like more information, please contact Kim Dunlap at x7647.
