THE DEN10: DECEMBER 10TH

The semester is wrapping up and the coffee shops are filled with students about to “flip out” over finals. Most of the big major Christmas events are behind us but we’ve got smaller, Christmas-themed house shows and office party’s as we head towards our homes to gather with our family for the final week of 2014. If you’re looking for something to be involved in next semester, we suggest signing up to mentor an at-risk student through Mentor Denton. Maybe get involved in Rotary or Kiwanis. Start thinking about those New Year's resolutions now, y'all. We are not short on opportunities to get involved in the community to make it a better place and we can’t think of a better city on earth to serve. Remember our volunteer post from a few months ago? Maybe go and scope it out again. Aside from that, there's plenty going on this week. Check out the ten events in the post below and start planning the next seven days of your life right now.
