Upper Iowa University Peacocks for Progress officers and Fayette Appreciation Day chairpersons (l-r) Julia Szepieniec, a sophomore biology major from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and Hannah Dotter, a junior environmental science major from Bloomington, Minnesota, stand alongside the growing list of 2018 Fayette Appreciation Day volunteer projects.

Upper Iowa University’s Peacocks for Progress is seeking volunteers to assist during the 2018 Fayette Appreciation Day. UIU students, faculty and staff will be joined by other local volunteers in conducting unique service projects in five Fayette County communities during the annual event on Wednesday, April 18. In the case of inclement weather, Fayette Appreciation Day will be rescheduled for Wednesday, April 25.

Since being established over a decade ago, over 4,500 UIU volunteers have completed more than 400 service projects throughout Fayette County during Fayette Appreciation Day. The event has been recognized locally and nationally, receiving awards from the State of Iowa Governor’s Service Awards and President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
