These pupils most of whom are chosen from the Student Council are conscien- tious, honest and alert. Their invaluable work is a tremenduous aid to the entire school. Service Club The Vashon Service Club was organized in order to give students an opportunity to be of service to the school. Students are assigned to help in the various offices at school and to usher whenever there are programs in the auditorium. For many semesters students have contributed canned goods at Thanksgiving and Christmas and have sent baskets of food to needy families in the community. In this way the service of the members has not been confined exclusively to the walls of the school.
