The 11th Annual Serve Arcanum program will return on Friday, May 3rd from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. again this year. Students at Arcanum High School assisted by teachers and community members will be out in the community again serving in various service projects. This is the 11th year for this outstanding project that helps the citizens of our community. Administrators are now soliciting opportunities to assist you, your business, your organization, with projects that they can help you complete. A few examples are law care, painting, cleaning, and organization. You provide the job and supplies, and the program will provide the manpower. The deadline for signing up for Serve Arcanum is April 24th. Please contact the HS Principal, Ty Cates at 2011 Trojan Avenue or email at [email protected]. Sign up sheets are available at the Arcanum Post Office. If needed, the rain date will be May 10th.

Thank you to the Arcanum FFA Members from Mr. Pohlman’s classes who have been donating their time to help the Village of Arcanum and the Arcanum Junior Baseball Association prepare for the upcoming baseball and softball seasons.
