BRASHER FALLS -- In the current budget environment of cutbacks and cuts, the St. Lawrence Central varsity boys soccer team recently held a fall cleanup day in lieu of practice to help out at school.
Knowing how much the school's maintenance crew has to do and appreciating the time they put into the soccer fields, the boys raked leaves in front of the elementary school and along the soccer field fence. They also spruced up the five swing and playground areas at the elementary and middle schools by raking the wood chips back under all of the equipment. And they emptied all the field trash bins and put them away for winter storage.
Earlier in the season the team volunteered as coaches and referees at the Little Larrie World Cup. Five of the boys also volunteered as coaches for the younger kids all summer.
"This is a great group of young men that like to be engaged and are more than willing to help out." said SLC coach Julia Rose.
"They understand how lucky they are to have a program and want to give back and help it grow," Coach Rose said.
The team also recognized retiring SLC athletic director Rose Bronchetti at their last game for her support in getting the boys soccer program approved and underway at SLC.
