Pear harvesting, museum repair, food collecting and wall building were just a few of the service projects completed by thousands of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during the Northwest Area Day of Service on 17 September 2011. The activities are part of a worldwide commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Church welfare program.
