The Kennedy Mine Amphitheater was descended upon by about 60 members of the Jackson Ward (congregation) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Wednesday, April 30, 2014. This was not a worship service, although several volunteers spent time in the chapel re-painting the floor. The activity was A Day of Community Service and was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 26,2014 but was postponed due to the rain on Friday. Additional members at other locations provided childcare and prepared dinner for the volunteers.

Several work projects were completed at the amphitheater property: pavers were installed, railings were constructed, and the terraces were cleared of gravel and the grass was mowed near the amphitheater. Baseboards and corrugated metal wainscoting were finished in the restrooms at the service center; a gate was built and painted, and pavers were installed. 

Merv Hoffman, a volunteer tour guide and maintenance worker, said the volunteers saved the foundation at least $1800.00 in labor costs and several months of time in completing the projects. The workers “gave us a breath of air”, he said.

The community service program reflects the desire of Mormons to follow the example of Jesus Christ by serving others. The effort receives resources from Church humanitarian services and the projects are coordinated by local Church leaders.
