Even traveling for 30 hours straight didnâ€™t keep Plymouth native Katie Day from jumping right in to get the most out of a seven-week trip to Ireland.
Day, a 2008 Plymouth High School graduate and Butler University senior, learned of opportunities to work for room and board in Ireland when she was traveling throughout Europe last year.
Day said, â€śI heard about an internet site (helpx.net) where people post their needs. I will be there for seven weeks and working on three different farms.â€ť

BOURBON â€” It was to be the first day of school Aug. 18, 2009 for Triton freshman Jacob Berger.
Sadly however, his family, friends, teammates, classmates and the entire Bourbon community learned that day that Jacob had died.
The 14-year-old had been at football practice the night before and had received a head injury from a head to head impact, but it was discovered later that Jacobâ€™s death was not solely related to football. Jacobâ€™s father, Tim Berger, said the cause of his death was due to a Dual Berry aneurism stemming from a congenital condition.
