Gehlen Conducts Fall Service Day


(Le Mars) — More than 150 Gehlen Catholic high school students have put down the pencil, and instead picked up a rake.  Today, is the fall service day when Gehlen students leave the classroom and devote the day for community service by offering to rake leaves, wash windows, and perform other outdoor autumn chores. Gehlen school officials say it is a time for Gehlen students to give back to the community.  Traditionally, the students assist the elderly who are no longer able to perform the household duties.
