Members of the community service club at Northport Middle School had some Valentine’s Day fun with members of the local senior residency, Atria of East Northport, on Feb. 8. During the event, students made valentines, had snacks, and played board games with some of the residents. This event was conceived and planned mainly by the students.

“They came up with the idea to have this event, and they planned the whole thing,” said Danielle Cardinale, and one of the supervisors of community service club. “They even brought in the food themselves – they’re such sweet kids.”

The community service club is made up of approximately 20 students that plan monthly community outreach. The club puts on holiday fundraisers, participates in activities like community outreach and literacy events, and more.

“I really love being a part of this club because doing nice things for people is just so fun,” said seventh grader Briana, “and I like getting to know people I wouldn’t normally get to spend time with.”
