This past weekend was the 29th Annual Jubilee Festival located in Olde Towne Daphne. Many students from DHS volunteered including groups such as the Leo Club, Girls Service Club, and the Men’s Basketball team.

Mayor Dane Haygood of Daphne said, “ It’s a great opportunity for our community to come together, so that we get to know our neighbors and really work together and understand that the people are the best asset here in the City of Daphne. “

Volunteers helped at the various booths, delivered water and lunches to the vendors, and worked with children in the Fun Zone, located at Centennial Park.

Student volunteer from the Girls Service Club, Holly Yazdi, said, “I didn’t volunteer for the hours, it was just to help the community.” One of her favorite parts of volunteering was seeing the kids so happy.

“It really takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to put on a program like this. Having the schools involved and come out and make it a good time for our younger residents and visitors really makes it a good time for all. We couldn’t do without all of the volunteers that help make all this happen,” Haygood said.
