Although community service hours are no longer required, the 27 booths at the third annual community service fair highlighted Archer girls’ continued passion for service.

This year’s fair on Friday, Oct. 20 featured booths, each run by at least one Archer student, which revolved around the different service projects that students do.

In order to get a booth at the fair, students had to fill out an application, create a poster and a sign-up sheet and make a slide which was projected in the Dining Hall during the event.

Students volunteered to have booths so they could advertise, promote and share their community service passions.

Archer no longer requires students to complete a certain number of service hours, but about 90 percent of tenth grade students surveyed last year reported that they still do service anyway, said Meg Shirk during a presentation on Archer’s service initiatives. Shirk created Archer’s service learning curriculum which the classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021 have used in their history classes.

Look at the gallery below to see moments from the fair.
