McClain High School’s annual community service day, known as MHS Day, was held Friday, May 13. Students and staff spread across Greenfield to perform all sorts of duties, like planting flowers, weeding, mulching, picking up trash, and painting, to name a few.

Students also cleaned up the town’s bike path, worked at the Greenfield Cemetery, painted weights at the school’s weight room, and painted fire hydrants.

Traditionally, students have painted fire hydrants in purple and gold, but this year their hydrant projects saw a variety of different themes. To see more pictures from the day, go to the McClain High School Facebook page.
