Serve Day 

On July 16th, hundreds gathered for the 4th annual Serve Day, a national community service outreach day originating from Church of the Highlands in Birmingham. Volunteers from 15 local churches and organizations met in front of the train depot for breakfast and a pep rally and then dispersed to over a dozen different service projects throughout the area. Pep rally attendees heard from YouTube sensation Destin Sandlin, who began the ceremony with an inspirational message. Sandlin’s speech was followed by comments from Hartselle councilwoman Virginia Alexander, county commissioner Randy Vest, Rep. Scott Stadthagen, Rep. Parker Moore, and Sen. Arthur Orr. A flag ceremony was performed by Hartselle Boy Scouts of America Troop 336, and recent Wallace State graduate Hannah Watson performed the National Anthem. The ceremony was closed out with prayer from Walter Blackman, pastor of East Highland Baptist Church. Afterwards, projects were completed at local schools, recovery centers, food pantries, and private homes.

Scott Stadthagen (Breakfast Sponsor), Maegan Jones – MarMac Real Estate (Pep Rally Sponsor), Redstone Federal Credit Union (Drink & Snack Sponsor), Diamond Pro/First United Methodist Church Youth/Hartselle First Assembly of God/Magnolia River/Thompson Homes (Tier 1 Sponsors), and Forever Kate/Habitat for Humanity of Morgan County (Tier 3 Sponsors).
