Chandler Service Club celebrated its 78th annual charity ball March 10 at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center.
Part of service club is the flower girl program. Even though Chandler Service Club has been in existence since 1933 it wasn’t until the 1952 ball marked the first time flower girls were introduced. This program consists of young ladies entering their senior year of high school. They are recommended by a club member while in the spring of their junior year of high school. They spend their senior year doing group community service events, and creating their own individual service project, “Project Priority.” These young ladies are encouraged to “find their own passion for service” and experience the joys of giving. In addition they attend social events and are provided personal growth and development opportunities. This year 51 young ladies participated in the program representing 12 high schools and performing more than 4,700 hours of community service. The flower girl program has helped many young women become prepared to assume volunteer roles where they live and work in the future.
