This livejournal community is for members of CSL, an upper school community service club at Marlborough. CSL was started in August of 2002 because there were no upper school community service clubs available. It has grown and is now entering its third year of existence. We hope this will be its biggest and most productive year yet! You can find information on upcoming community service events here, as well as updates from past events. Feel free to post your own CSL-related topics here also.


The four council members of CSL are:

Gabrielle (day_tripper87), Co-President
Jenna (andy_roddick12), Co-President
Morgan, Vice President
Emily (elladin_sane), Secretary/Treasurer

Meetings are held Tuesdays at lunch.


Some very diverse quotes to inspire you to sign up for one of our upcoming community service activities:

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

"If there's anything that you want
If there's anything I can do
Just call on me and I'll send it along
With love, from me to you "
- The Beatles

“You're happiest when you are making the greatest contribution.” – Robert F. Kennedy

"We all want to change the world." - The Beatles

"Be the change that you want to see in the world." –Gandhi

"Help! I need somebody.
Help! Not just anybody.
Help! You know I need someone.

When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anybody's help in any way
But now these days are gone
I'm not so self assured
Now I find I've changed my mind
I've opened up the doors

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being 'round
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won't you please, please help me... "
- The Beatles

"One person can make a difference and every person should try." -John F. Kennedy

"One is not born in the world to do everything but to do something." - Henry David Thoreau

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." –Margaret Mead

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit in." –Nelson Henderson

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." –Anne Frank
"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." - The Beatles


Think community service thoughts. And then go out there and DO something.
