Edina’s seventh annual Day of Service took place Oct. 24 and every Edina resident had the opportunity to participate. Through the many volunteer opportunities, Edina residents were able to display their gratitude. “The Edina Day of Service is a great way to be a part of something bigger than yourself that helps the community we are so lucky to be a part of. It is important to give back to the community that has raised us so well,” said EHS senior Alex Meffert.
