New Leadership Society Gives Back to the Community

The Winter Break did not stop students of The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), the new leadership society at Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) , from giving back to the community. On Wednesday, December 23, 2015, a small group of NSLS students met up on campus, headed down to Culpeper, VA, and prepared a meal for those less fortunate at this time of year.

Although classes officially ended on December 18, 2015, and the college was closed from December 22, 2015 through January 3, 2016, the group took time out of their Break to visit the Culpeper Heating Shelter at a local church to prepare and serve a meal to the local community members who use the temporary shelter.

IMG_1118An annual activity, the students of LFCC chapter of NSLS arrived at the local shelter at 4:00pm and began preparing a full-course dinner which consisted of a Caesar salad complete with various dressings, a lasagna dinner, and garlic and cheese bread. All food was prepared on-site by the students. Two lasagnas were prepared, one with a meat sauce blend and the other a non-meat sauce, four-cheese lasagna.

Guests began arriving at around 5:30pm and dinner was served at precisely 6:00pm in the church’s community dining hall. The students divvied up the food and served all items, by hand, to the guests. Between the 16 guests, only two slices of lasagna were left. The guests were very grateful. One very humble gentlemen sat down with the group and told jokes while they cleaned up and kept the mood lively. The students enjoyed not only serving the dinner, but getting to chat one-on-one with some of the guests before, during, and after dinner.
