Parkland Lodge... You're invited

'cause you're so nice!
Hi everybody and welcome back to another article
in Micah's Misadventures. Today I'm going to talk
about the wonderful time I had volunteering at the 'cause you're so nice!
Parkland Seniors Lodge. On Saturday, December 2
there was a tea and bake sale with silent auction at
the Lodge, and hope you like this article about my
time there. DATE
It all started when my teacher stood up in class
and announced the following: “We need volunteers
Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017
for the Parkland Lodge's tea and bake sale. Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017
Normally H.R.H. would be volunteering but they
are working on the play.” A lot of kids put their
TIME: 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
hand up, but only a few were chosen, including
myself. Our teacher sent us over to the office to call TIME: 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
our parents to see if we were allowed. I called my
step-dad and when I told him the details he said he
would work it out so I could go. The others who
volunteered with me were Peyton, Colby, and
The next day at 1:30 pm I pulled up to the old PLACE
Edson hospital, which the seniors have taken over
while the lodge is getting renovations. I noticed
The Edson Recycling Depot
Colby walking on the sidewalk and so we went in The Edson Recycling Depot
together. A nice man (I didn't get his name) was
waiting for us in the lobby. We looked at his paper
(5237 1st Avenue)
and noticed Peyton and Danika were already there.
The man showed us to the bake sale where my first (5237 1st Avenue)
job began. I was to bag the items people wanted and
Free Draws, Goodies,
tell them how much it cost. I served about ten
people. Free Draws, Goodies,
After a while the customers stopped coming and
then I helped put away tables. The cashier offered
Coffee etc.
us a bake sale treat for free. Colby and I tried to say Coffee etc.
no, but she wouldn't take no for an answer. I let
Colby decide and he chose one of the most
delicious chocolates you could ever imagine.
We decided to take a break and get some tea. We will sort your recycling
When we got to the area where tea was being
served, we met up with Peyton and Danika. We
decided to switch jobs so my second job began.
Westhaven Choir: 12:00-12:30 pm
I was to go to tables and collect people's garbage, Westhaven Choir: 12:00-12:30 pm
fill up their cups, and take the dirty dishes away to
be cleaned. I switched with Peyton and went to help
count up the bake sale money. I don't remember the
exact amount.
At three o'clock, we had to go around and flip
over the silent auction sheets and collect all the
pens. Then the man gave us goodie bags and Peyton
and Danika's mothers took pictures of us. I opened
up the goodie bag to find an Edson shirt pin and a
bag full of chocolate Christmas coins.
I had a really great time volunteering. Until next
