My ten hours of community hours consisted of working extra hours for my assigned internship jobs, but the volunteer work that I did was for extra work that the employee needed help with. Three out of the ten community hours went towards helping with the Fourth of July Golf Tournament. The week of the tournament, I worked at the Chamber of Commerce, which was the host for the tournament. I spent my assigned twenty hours preparing gift bags and signs for the tournament, but there was still more work that needed to be done to prepare for the tournament. So I spent an hour hanging up signs and making sure everything was set for the tournament the next day. The day of the golf tournament, I spent two hours helping collect money and hand out gift bags. The week I worked at the City Hall, my assigned job was to document and sort old ordinances, which was really neat getting to see old ordinances from the early 20th century. When my assigned 25 hours for the week was completed, I still had just a little more ordinances to do before all of the documented ordinances up to present time were complete. I was determined to finish the rest of it, so I counted that hour of completing the documentation as an hour of community service. Most of my hours went towards helping prepare the Daycare float for the Picnic parade. Picnic is a busy week for Tulia with so many activities going on, and the parade float took a lot of time and effort. Six of my community hours went towards working on the float. The daycare float was beach themed, and cardboard was our best friend. I carved and painted a shark, dolphins, and beach balls. I also helped make tissue paper flowers and attach these items to the trailer. Since I enjoy crafting, I really enjoyed my time creating the pieces for the float.
