​Dear JAVA volunteers,
Thank you for the tremendous service you provided to the Studebaker National Museum by volunteering at our Trunk or Treat. With your support, we welcomed a record 1,350 people to the Museum in just two hours for Trunk or Treat.
Your warm smiles and engaging personalities ensured that each of the children enjoyed a safe and culturally enriching Trunk or Treat experience.
We are grateful for your support and hope you will join us again in 2018.

Arts Café

Thank you and your JAVA group for help with our Arts Café. It was a little boring for them when the festivities started but the ones who came out did a great job with setting up and tearing down etc... We will keep you folks in mind for next year's event and will probably plan the volunteer schedule a bit differently. Again, we appreciate your kindness in helping out.

Words will never express the work you and the group did to accomplish what was needed. We couldn't have done it without JAVA.

Zoo Boo Haunted Zoo Train

I just wanted to touch base with you today to let you know how greatly we appreciated all of the JAVA volunteers that helped us make this year's Zoo Boo Haunted Zoo Train an ENORMOUS success! The students were all very kind, respectful and committed to this event. We had amazing feedback on this year's train, and it was greatly in part to the JAVA students that it was as popular as it was. If you could please pass along my sincere gratitude for their hard work, I would truly appreciate it!

Thank you so much,

Dearest SMH Volunteers, 

THANK YOU so very much for all your help with the Winter Walk.  Every person who baked cookies and brought them in....THANK YOU!!!  
For every person who helped set-up, clean-up, organize, sell, help in the kitchen, greet, walk, cheer on, take pictures, paint faces, register walkers, clean up the route, get marquees, collect money, count the money, and every other thing I can't think of right now, but what made a difference in our Walk, THANK YOU!!!!!!!  
It was a great success from the weather to the people!  
We don't have the final numbers in yet, but will let you know when we do.  
Just wanted to be sure and tell you all that we appreciate everything that you did for the Women of SMH!

Thanks again and Peace,

On behalf of Hilltop Lutheran Church I want to thank you all for helping out at our Annual St. Pat's Party. I know our guests had a wonderful time enjoying the games, good food and warm conversations. We couldn't have done it without your JAVA students - they were key to the success of the party.
Please thank all of the students who helped that night. Their smiles, energy and enthusiasm was much appreciated!
Thank you again

Blessings always
