The University of Tennessee Center for Leadership and Service conducts Fall and Spring Break service projects. The Alternative Spring Breaks are available to students to visit other cities to do volunteer service projects and relief work.
Last Saturday’s group came to Ijams to do pre-trip service and to get to know one another. They moved a 1000-pound sculpture and assisted with landscaping.
They will travel to Charleston, SC to work with the Parks and Recreation Department and the National Park Service.
The plaza is getting a makeover. Above the UT group are removing and stacking pavers, as Coach Butch Jones is apt to say, "brick-by-brick."
