Common Grounds Service Learning Program has successful first year

What is service learning? This was the exact question I was asking myself a year ago — well, a school year ago, when I decided to take on this role. Ultimately, service learning is a philosophy where students are encouraged to combine what they study in school with their own skills and interests, and apply it to community service activities. Moreover, the goal of service learning is for students to reflect on the issues and needs of the area, organization or population that they are serving, which in turn offers an opportunity for them to grow as a result of the work they do in our community.

Seventy years after Allied forces created the largest armada ever assembled to accomplish the greatest seaborn invasion in history, 96-year-old Cazenovia veteran, Fred Taylor, can recall flying his B-17 bomber during the D-Day invasion of Normandy as if it were only yesterday. “There were so many planes in the air it looked like Broadway,” Taylor said. “We bombed ahead of the troops. We flew at 12,000 feet — low altitude for heavy bombers. We could see the men down there. The English Channel looked like Broadway and Times Square with all the ships and transports, loaded with an enormous number of men and supplies. We put ashore 400,000 men.
