Thanks to a community partnership with Papa Gino’s and Flagship Cinemas in Auburn, students, parents and Lewiston-Auburn Rotary members were treated to a pizza party and a movie to celebrate the generous giving of volunteer services.   Parents and students joined the fun and reflected on the many joint projects completed by generations of volunteers working together.

A moving speech and presentation to their advisor, Monica Millhime, was made on behalf of all students by PWS Junior Volunteer President, Cody Campbell.  “Mrs. Millhime has always been a part of the community in one way or another, lending a helping hand, organizing events, you name, she does everything.  I’m surprised she has time to sleep,” shared Campbell.  “She’s a great inspiration on what anyone should strive to be.”
