An abandoned graveyard in Edgecomb was the focus of a community service project. Students cleaned up fallen branches and trash, cut trees and mowed weeds. They also researched the history of the cemetery using the Internet, State Archives and the local library. After learning that soldiers from the Revolution, the War of 1812 and the Civil War were buried there, the students created a Memorial Day ceremony for the site.
Community service plays an important role in the mission of The Deck House School.
Community service is an integral part of a Deck House education. Two or three hours a week are spent in outreach activities such as hospital and nursing home visitation, local cleanup projects, and assisting town officials in various capacities. Recipients of this program have included The Red Cross, Morris Farm, Lincoln County Animal Shelter, St. Andrew's Hospital in Boothbay Harbor and Habitat for Humanity.
Bike frames donated by Bath Ski and Cycle were reconditioned by the boys under the supervision of Josh Cornell who coordinated the project and taught the boys how to fix the bikes. Ten reconditioned bikes were donated to the Edgecomb Eddy School which auctioned them at a school fair to help raise money
for their PTC.
