"Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, and at the end of the day you don't look at it and wish you had painted something different."  Author Unknown

Did God make it Wyoming County?  This was the question posed to us during reflection.  When seeing the devastation of the land and the poverty that we sometimes comes across it can be easy to forget that God is down here.  In case you were wondering, the group unanimously said, yes, God is very evident here.

For this non-home repair Friday, we once again sent a crew to UGWA to continue to help with the stream clean-up.  It is a rather hot and humid day, so the volunteers were only able to stay outside for a short time.  We also continued with the Home Repair classes at St. Vincent DePaul with this week's classes focusing on changing out faucets and drains in your sink.

Basketball camp concluded with the awards ceremony, with trophies, basketballs and t-shirts for all the campers.  A BIG thank you to Coach "D" for spending another week with us and offering the kids of Wyoming County another wonderful week of basketball camp.

Afternoon activities included tutoring and Glen Rogers Manor.  Tutoring continues to go very well.  The combination of the enthusiastic volunteers and the attentive kids has been marvelous.  Glen Rogers manor also continues to go wonderfully.  We are getting a record number of PVs going and also record numbers of participation of the residents.  All in all, today was a wonderful day.

Tonight's dinner is a yummy combination of.....fajitas, potatoes and cornbread.
