Fayette Appreciation Day returns Wednesday, April 20. Volunteers will assist local organizations in completing their respective project requests during the annual event. Note: In the event of inclement weather, individual groups are responsible for the completion of their project prior to Wednesday, April 27.

Since being established over a decade ago, over 4,500 Upper Iowa University volunteers have completed more than 400 service projects throughout Fayette County during Fayette Appreciation Day. The event has been recognized locally and nationally, receiving awards from the State of Iowa Governor’s Service Awards and President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.

This year’s projects include seasonal maintenance at local parks, Fayette Campus and community yardwork and landscaping, and highway and trail cleanup.
