On Monday, staff members and students of Cumberland Academy gathered at Forest Park to pick up scraps of trash left behind after the 4th Annual Popcorn Festival this weekend.

Once finished, some students enjoyed a game of touch football while others took the opportunity to visit and get to know their instructors before enjoying lunch from Maurizio's Restaurant and returning to school.

Although it required some work, Principal Lisa Showalter said the "service learning project" is a fun way for the more than 20 students that participated to show support and appreciation for special community events like the festival.
