Yesterday, I participated in the Martin Luther King Day of Service, hosted by Wilmington College and taking place at various locations in Wilmington. I was one of the site leaders, but the locations and teams were kept a secret until the morning of the event, so it was more in “challenge” format. My team went to Sugartree Ministries, the local food pantry/coffee shop/concert venue to help do some painting, caulking, and other miscellaneous needs. You may know of Sugartree Ministries through Rachel Ray or Glenn Beck, but there is so much more to this great organization than what was displayed through the media (yes, Wilmington, Ohio has been on national TV several times). My group finished up a little early, so we then went to the Clinton County homeless shelter to help out another group, who was organizing their building that housed all of their donations. The room looked completely different when we were done with it! Over all, the day was a great “day on”, since we obviously did not need another day off. And to top it off, Chipotle donated food for all of us!
As I begin this next week, I realize that I am going to be very busy, but am thankful that I got ahead as much as I could this weekend to help ease the homework and study load. Hopefully this leaves me some time to begin my research topic, ACL patellar tendon grafts. I’m sure I’ll be able to tell you all about it in future entrys!

Hot air balloon flame, a favorite at every HoliDazzle parade
Contributed by Brad Fuller
One advantage of living in Wilmington and going to college here is that you get to experience everything that the town has to offer during the holiday season. Many of these events take place during breaks and most students do not get to see them. However if possible, I would recommend all of them. Last night was the first event of the season, the Hometown HoliDazzle parade. This is a relatively new event, but it is now a tradition in which all of the streets in the downtown area are closed off for an afternoon festival with a parade following. For the past 5 years, it has been a tradition to start off the holiday season the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The parade even ends with Santa arriving!
While the break from school was enjoyable, it’s time for me to get back to work. We have one more week of class and a week of final exams (which I still have a considerable amount of studying to do for), then a month off for winter break! While I enjoy being at school, a break will be nice. But after a couple weeks away from campus, I will be ready for classes to start again.
Welcome to the Wilmington student blogs, where several students contribute to this column.
