CAMDEN — The National Honor Society's annual Talent Show March 17 at Camden Hills Regional High School showcased diverse and fresh musical performances, and raised funds for special community events sponsored by the Society and scholarships.

The student performers brought jazz, rap, hard rock, indie, show tunes, and original composition to the show, which was ably emceed by Jack Moody and Celeb Love-Webb.

In May, the CHRHS National Honor Society chapter invites community members 55 and older to the Seasoned Citizens Prom, for an evening of dancing to live music and refreshments. Members of NHS will be on-hand, as hosts and dance partners, and to make connections between the generations.

In the fall, the Society hosts a veteran's breakfast on Veteran's Day, and all year long, its members perform community service. Moody and Zoe Zwecker talked about volunteering during lunch time at the community soup kitchen at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Rockland and Molly Mann told audience members about volunteering with the Maine Syria Relief Project organized by CHRHS graduate Alison McKellar to collect clothing, food staples, and medical equipment.
