Service to Community - Giving of Themselves
from the 1966 Bishop O'Connell Yearbook - The Shield
The spirit which flows through every phase of O'Connell life finds another outlet in the various service clubs. These worthwhile organizations perform several valuable services to our community. Whether it is the Red Cross stuffing candy into Christmas stockings, the Inner-City group braving the early morning air, or the Keys and Keyettes collecting for cerebral palsy--one will always sense the feelings of duty and responsibility that characterize these teenagers' admirable work.
