     Paige and Leah Holub of Monticello have recorded almost 70 hours of Silver Cord Service this year helping the Monticello Area Chamber of Commerce Commercial Club with the watering of 50-plus pots of flowers. In recognition of their volunteer service, Sandy Moats, chair of the Commercial Club, and Cheryl Dirks, president of the Ambassadors, presented certificates and Chamber Bucks to the Holubs on Sept. 11.

     “The chamber exists with the help of many volunteers and these students can now add this experience to their resumes,” said Monticello Chamber President Monica Gray, who was also on hand to thank the students. “Thanks to their hard work, our community and visitors benefit from the beautification of the downtown area.”

     To volunteer for the Monticello Area Chamber of Commerce, contact the office at 319-465-5626.

     The Silver Cord Program exists to promote volunteerism and to encourage students to take part in their community. Students may earn a Silver Service Cord to be worn on their gown at graduation, which indicates significant hours of volunteer service during their enrollment at Monticello High School. Tim Lambert is the contact for the program at MHS.
