FOLEY – Cadets with the Foley High School’s AFROTC, led by Master Sergeant Darell Howard, worked tirelessly for several hours on Feb. 6 and Feb. 9 to help set up and take down the Friends of the Foley Library Annual Book Sale.
The cadets performed several heavy-duty activities during the event. Beginning on Feb. 6, they retrieved large amounts of boxes filled with books during multiple truck runs from the storage center where the books are kept. After loading and transporting the books to the Foley Civic Center, the cadets then unloaded the boxes and placed the books based on category on tables spread throughout the Civic Center in preparation for the sale that took place on Feb. 8 – 9.
On Feb. 9 the cadets returned to work, now boxing up the unsold books. The boxes were loaded onto the Civic Center stage and then carried to the Waterfront Mission truck, where the excess books were donated.
City of Foley Civic Center Events Coordinator Keith Nelson worked alongside the cadets throughout the set up and take down to help with the event.
The Foley High School AFROTC have volunteered to do the heavy lifting for the book sale for years, and “continue to devote themselves to their duties as part of their community service.”
The cadets who participated in the effort to make the book sale a success, listed in alphabetical order by last name, were:
