The Centennial Chapter of the Young Men’s Service League honored its 22 seniors on April 28 at the Roswell Country Club and celebrated four years of community service together. Since 2014, the class of 2019 has volunteered over 2,150 hours most of these alongside their mothers for the philanthropies the chapter supports. They served our community in many ways from cooking meals for residents at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, to playing wheelchair basketball with the Titan’s Wheelchair Sports, to assisting at the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve, to after-school tutoring with elementary kids for Star House, to assisting seniors with technology support at BH Tech Group, to stocking the food pantry at the NFCC, to playing bingo with the residents at the Tapestry House Assisted Living.
The evening commemorated the young men’s dedication to service over the past four years and allowed mothers and sons a chance to reflect on the lasting impact YMSL has had on themselves and their community. "Young Men’s Service League is a collection of experiences that I wouldn't trade for the world. I have cultivated a wealth of knowledge, compassion, and respect for others in my community. YMSL has also given me the opportunity to deepen and grow my relationship with my mother. Life is all about relationships which I didn’t fully understand prior to my time with YMSL. After four years with YMSL, we now carry in our hearts the importance of serving and giving back to our communities which we take with us as we go on to life’s next adventures.” YMSL Senior Class President, Will Edwards.
