THURSDAY, MAY 12th, 2011, WAS KELLER WILLIAMS' 3rd ANNUAL RED DAY. Tens of Thousands of Keller Williams Real Estate Agents all across the United States & Canada participated in our "Give Where You Live" day of Volunteer Service to our communities.
Here in York, PA, our Market Center opted to Volunteer at our Local Libraries, since they were recommended as one entity whose funding has been cut the most and are one of the most in need. The York County Library System has various small Libraries in some of the small communities throughout the County, in addition to the Main Library in Downtown York.
Three of us, pictured above, worked on Grounds Maintenance at the Collinsville Library in Brogue, PA, a very small rural village south of York. We weeded the gardens around the building, did some mulching, and washed windows for them.
A few others from our Market Center worked at the Kreutz Creek Valley Library Center in Hellam, PA, another small rural community, but larger than Collinsville/Brogue. They also did gardening work, including placing cement blocks for a retaining wall.
The majority of agents from our Market Center worked at the Main Library for our York County Library System, Martin Memorial Library, in downtown York. They also did some gardening in a small garden near the Children's section, did sweeping and cleaning of the public sidewalks and drive areas around the building, and also had the opportunity to do actual Library work.
All in all, it was a great day in York, PA, for our Keller Williams' 3rd Annual RED Day, which is dedicated each year in honor of Keller Williams Realty's Vice Chairman of the Board, Mo Anderson, whose birthday is May 12th.
