HAYS, Kan. -- Students and the community have a great opportunity to volunteer for the second annual Paint-A-Thon hosted by the Fort Hays State University Tigers in Service and the Hays Rotary Club on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Two houses in Hays have been selected to be painted. Volunteers can sign up for one of two shifts, 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers have the option to put together teams within organizations.

"We seek applications from people in the community," said Greg Sund, Hays Rotary Club president-elect. "We review the applications and have people do an on-site visit to learn the condition of the homes and whether this program is the appropriate solution."

"The Rotary Club has two missions. One is community improvement through programs like this and education programs for children and adults. The other is an International mission to encourage clubs to form relationships with Rotarians in other parts of the world to complete improvement projects throughout the world," said Sund.

Applications to volunteer are due Friday, Sept. 21, in Custer Hall, room 202. For more information, contact Tigers in Service at 785-628-5537 or service@fhsu.edu.
