"The Big Event,” Salisbury University’s Student Government Association-sponsored community service work day, attracted a record-breaking number of volunteers from over 50 different student organizations. Some 600 students worked throughout Saturday, April 14, to improve homes, parks and neighborhoods.

According to Katherine Mooney, vice president of external affairs for the SGA, students volunteered at 85 public and private sites. Locations included residences and properties in Salisbury and beyond. Students partnered with different neighborhood associations as well as with the City Park, Salisbury Zoo and a Little League in Fruitland. They gathered at 9 a.m. to pick up equipment and instructions and worked until 2 p.m., some longer.

"Students were very enthusiastic and wanted to help, which we were glad to see,” said Mooney. The Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity won the "Golden Trowel” spirit award for enthusiasm. Others from CRU, the Graduate Student Council and Phi Mu sorority also turned out in large numbers, she said. Students were welcomed by SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach and Salisbury Mayor James Ireton, an SU alum, who later joined volunteers at a project in his neighborhood.

"The SGA appreciated everyone coming out to work,” Mooney added. "It’s important for us to understand that we are part of the greater community. We all live in the same place.”
