This past Saturday, February 23rd, a dedicated group of volunteers put on the Tributary Bash to celebrate and benefit H2O, Help To Others. Help to Others is a service-learning program for middle and high school students in Lakewood. H2O engages youth in volunteer work, empowering them with the values of belonging and contributing to their community.
HERE’S THE DEAL: I created a mini-documentary for the Tributary Bash. The response from attendees was overwhelming. A mixture of laughter, applause and tears made the debut a success. The outpouring of positives from people at the party humbled me.
An ONLINE premier of the mini-doc will be Friday, March 1 @ 7:30. Link to follow.
The mini-doc is only the beginning. My goal is to make a short feature documentary about H2O that chronicles Lakewood’s struggle to find a way to sustain a cornerstone of the community. The larger feature, Ripples of Change, is due out in 2014. It is currently in production through August of 2013.
