Seeley Swan High School Senior Joleen Sorensen talked with Council members about this year's Senior Priority program at the September 20th meeting.
Senior Priority is a non-profit, service-based organization focused on the needs of the community. The seniors offer aid to civic organizations, the town councils, the handicapped, children and the elderly.
The program is beginning its fifth year of service.
Over the past four years, the Senior Priority students have helped with shoveling snow, splitting and stacking wood, painting, conducting surveys for the area and participated in food drives for the food bank to name a few of the activities.
The seniors receive credit for the hours they work as well as gain valuable experience and insights on how donating time and services can make a difference in the lives of the students and those in their community who are served.
Sorensen told the Council that if it needed any assistance or if any member of the community needs any services they are urged to call Mr. Schneiter at 677-2224.
After the Senior Priority presentation, Council Member Cheri Thompson reported that the multi-purpose Trail Map for the Seeley Lake area have been printed.
The map shows 17 trails, and classes them as either easy or intermediate. The trails can be referenced by location along the roads and highway or by section, township and range.
They are now available at the Chamber of Commerce office on Highway 83.
The next regular monthly board meeting will be held October 18th at the Seeley Lake Fire Hall at 7 p.m.
