Top, First-graders Jason Welsh, from left, Conner Bruther and Jalel Zaabani take turns reading pages from the book "Stellaluna" with the help of Hanover College freshman Libby Bower during a reading marathon at Southwestern Elementary School on Wednesday.
The marathon was one of several service opportunities for the annual August Experience, a two-day event that gives incoming Hanover freshmen chances to serve in the community.
The other opportunities included sorting and organizing items at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore; clearing attic space and other work at the Hanover Community Preschool; helping to move River Valley Resources to a different building; helping with the Open Hands Open Hearts food bank at Hanover United Methodist Church; gardening at Historic Madison Inc.'s Dr. Hutchings Office and Hospital; cleaning and food preparation at the Salvation Army; and cleaning and repairs at Camp Whippoorwill.
Hanover students will begin classes Monday, and the college's fall convocation ceremony will be Thursday, Sept. 6.
