The Jaycees Creed, adopted in 1946 by C. William Brownfield in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, concludes with a powerful statement: “service to humanity is the best work of life.” Brownfield explained his inspiration for this line:”The life lived unselfishly grows richer, deeper, and fuller. Joy is more enduring and peace of mind, more certain. The world looks at the contribution such a life has made and marks the one who lived it as a benefactor of the race; yet he knows in truth the greater benefit has been his own.”

A. Please tell us about a community service project with which you have been involved, including the impact you believe you had on the community, and the impact of the project on you personally.
