CENTERBURG — Community members came together once again Sunday in Centerburg for the quarterly Serve The Burg day of service.

Since its inception in November 2017, Serve the Burg has helped the community in a multitude of projects, both inside and out. Sunday, volunteers helped serve meals provided by Faith Lutheran Church to 50 seniors, as well as applying a fresh coat of paint at the Centerburg Library. They further gave the Centerburg Senior Services Center a clean, freshly waxed floor. Floors were also cleaned and equipment disinfected in preschool classrooms at “the old high school” on Preston Street.

Thirty eight volunteers attended Sunday morning, according to Serve the Burg Coordinator Bryan Hetterscheidt.

“In this day and age people realize we have to help each other,” Hetterscheidt said of the continued participation in the day of service. “We are here to help each other out.”

Hetterscheidt also noted that the non-profit is lucky to have 21 community businesses and associations providing “100 percent backing” for the quarterly project.

Sunday, The Burg Cafe and Bakery provided volunteers with donuts for breakfast and 1834 Midway Tavern hosted.

Hetterscheidt noted that Serve the Burg will “need a lot of help” at the next event, which will be held Sunday, May 5. Projects in May will revolve around readying the community for spring and summer with projects such as planting and cleaning gutters.
