"The purpose of life is not to be happy, but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." Leo Rosten
The theme for last night's reflection was focused on the effect of coal on the region and particular the women in the region. We were asked to share with the group women whom we thought exemplified the strong, resilient woman of the area.
Being Friday, today volunteers spent the day doing "non home repair" activities. The tutoring continues to be a successful program with the children enjoying themselves immensely. We also sent a group to help with UGWA (Upper Guyandotte Watershed Association) and their water monitoring project. After finishing up there, the group went to Twin Falls for a late lunch and a hike to the falls. We also had our second installment of the home repair class at St. Vincent DePaul. Today the students were taught how to drywall and to fix small holes. Volunteers also took the time to go out and visit people they have met previous summers. By the sounds of it everyone had a great day.
Tonight for dinner we will be treated with fish and chips, and curry. Yummy, yummy in the tummy.
