dogsittersMadawaska National Honor Society Students take their community service seriously.  Proof of that recently came in the form of some volunteer work for Cover Corner Kennels in St. Agatha, owned by Pierre and Donna Dubay.  School vacation weeks usually increase activity at kennels, so Madawaska NHS student Raleigh Toussaint organized a volunteer event to help out with the dog sitting.  Raleigh explained, "I had so much fun. This is what I imagine heaven looks like-- dogs everywhere!" Sam Boucher and Ben Hebert both thought that listening to the dogs bark all day was pretty "ruff," but the smiles on their faces seem to indicate they enjoyed the activity.  Hannah Nadeau also had a good time.  "There is nothing better than spending the morning with a bunch of sweet pups" according to Hannah.  Chelsea Pelletier also helped out by spending some of her time with the dogs as well.  Nice job, NHS students!
