You did it Tucker! Thanks to your amazing outpouring of support on this National Day of Service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we set a new record with over 60 volunteers at the center today! You not only totally transformed the new reading nook but you also pitched in to paint another much larger room at the center.

You sorted and culled the various books that had accumulated and also donated some great new additions. Thanks to your generosity we received a great love seat and ottoman and the cutest kid sized table and chairs plus rugs and many other items for use in the reading nook.

We’d like to thank the hard working folks of the Tucker Orchard Guild who worked on their courtyard rejuvenation project and also added additional blueberry bushes and fruit trees.

We’d also like to give a big shout out to the young ladies of Immaculate Heart of Mary Daisy Troop 16432 who donated their time to decorate a ‘Little Library” for use in the courtyard aided by members of Community Art Tucker (C.A.T.).

Finally, we’d like to personally offer our deepest gratitude to Tucker Recreation Center Director William Smith who not only came in today on his holiday to assist us but more importantly works so tirelessly at the Center every single day to make it the wonderful resource it is for our community!

Feel free to tag yourself in the pictures below and also add any you may have taken today in the comments below so we can add them to our album.

It was a great day, we accomplished a lot and it was a truly fantastic way to honor the legacy of Dr. King. Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you at Tucker Rec again soon!
