Good Neighbor Day @ University Center Tickets
Mar 21 all-day

Good Neighbor Day provide an opportunity for students to get to know our university neighbors and provide helpful yard work for local residents. This day is a great way to strengthen the relationships between students and members of the Fredericksburg community. COAR does this by sending students to volunteer at homes in the College Heights and College Terrace neighborhoods, doing outdoor service projects such as gardening, painting, raking, and mulching. After the morning of service, there is a free picnic on Ball Circle for students and community members. Join us in being Good Neighbors on Saturday, March 21st, 2019 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm! In order to sign up for this event and log service hours
