Columbia, KY - Lindsey Wilson College student-athletes, coaches and administrators joined a campus-wide community service initiative around Columbia as Malvina Farkle Day was celebrated on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

The Blue Raiders took a break from the classrooms and competitions to give back to the community that supports them so well.


The football, wrestling, men's and women's bowling, and men's and women's cross country and track and field teams, participated in a community-wide trash pickup; wrestling covered the downtown Columbia area, football and men's and women's bowling cleaned along Fairgrounds Street, and men's and women's cross country and track and field picked up trash along Bull Run Road.

Women's soccer, women's basketball and cycling all participated in improvement efforts across campus.

Volleyball brought joy to The Ole Homeplace, an adult daycare health center. The team played board games, card games, painted nails and did makeovers, while outside there was a game of Cornhole that provided smiles and laughter.

The cheer and dance team cleaned out storage containers and recycled usable items while the men's and women's swimming teams provided a helping hand at Adair County Middle School. The Lindsey Wilson softball and baseball teams put forth a combined effort to tidy up the Joe Johnson Little League Park batting facilities.

Malvina Farkle Day is a yearly tradition at Lindsey Wilson College where the campus gives back to the surrounding area through community-service activities in the morning, followed by fun and games in the afternoon. All classes are canceled so everyone can participate.

The exact date of Malvina Farkle Day is kept secret from students until the day of the event, when students are traditionally woken up by sirens and bullhorns, and the day of community service and fun begins. - Mark Vasey
