FAYETTE, Iowa (April 18, 2012) – Due to the expectation of inclement weather today, Upper Iowa University has postponed Fayette Appreciation Day to Wednesday, April 25.
During Fayette Appreciation Day, Upper Iowa volunteers assist with about two dozen service projects, and then celebrate work well done at a picnic at noon in Cardinal Park. Projects include work at individual residents' homes; at North Fayette Middle School; along the Volga River, the bike trail and Klock's Island; along local highways and at the cemetery on old Highway 150; at Rainbowland and Maple Crest Manor; in downtown Fayette; at local churches; at Big Rock Golf Course; and on campus. In addition, volunteers will help Meals on Wheels, go door-to-door to collect non-perishable food items for the Fayette County Food Pantry, and safely recycle and dispose of computer-related equipment. All food items should be left on a porch or other visible location.
