Riverview Hosts Bowdoin Students
For the 7th consecutive year, high spirited and hard working Bowdoin College students built connections between Riverview and Maine’s oldest college as part of Bowdoin’s long standing commitment to community service.
Riverview has been hosting college volunteers since 2009 through the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good, dedicated to making service to society a cornerstone of their students education and lives.
“Our goal is to have our local communities become as much a part of the educational experience as does the college itself,” explains Andrew Lardie, Associate Director for Service and Leadership, at the McKeen Center. “Riverview’s mission of helping regional youth and the fact that two of your staff are alumni provides clear examples to our students of how they can promote the Common Good in their own lives and careers.”
To name just a few improvements, Bowdoin volunteers have cleared over a mile of trails, groomed three campsites, thinned and improved tree stands, cleaned walking paths and repaired drive ways.
Thanks to all of you for your support and help, and as always we wish you the best of luck in your future!
