Mossyrock, Washington Blueberry Festival
One of MAAL's major activities is planning and organizing the Blueberry Festival. Attendance has grown to about 7,200 in its 5th year. In 2011, community organizations were able to generate over $10,000 to put back into the community.
Mossyrock Youth Leadership Program
The Mossyrock Youth Leadership Program is a youth leadership and life building program offered to middle and high school students in the Mossyrock School District. Projects are centered on community engagement. Students have the opportunity to work within their community, with other community organizations, and work on projects that enhance each others' and other community members' well being.
This is important because youth that are engaged in such activities are more likely to graduate.
In 2011, one of their projects was to help serve at the Veteran's Day dinner.
MAAL Grants and Scholarships
In 2011, MAAL awarded Civic Engagement Scholarships to Robert Stevens and Shannon Simon. Both seniors had exhibited exemplary service to their community. Proceeds from the Blueberry Festival dunk tank help fund these scholarships.
Honor an Elder Program
