"The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings." 
Dave Weinbaum

Today is our official last day of the 2010 PV Summer Home Repair program. The weather continues to be a bit warm, but temperatures are suppose to break the evening.  We finished up our sites in Wyco, Brenton and a combo site in Glen Rogers/Lilydale/Pineville.  There were downpours to dodge, but we were able to get pretty much everything done. It was also the official last day of work up in Hanover.  This site was very unique, it began with our NIU Spring Break Trip in March, the TGIA group from Brooklyn in April and each group of volunteers through the summer program. It was truly a PV Community effort to help get the home owner back in her house.  Not only is it a functional house for her, but it is a beautiful place to call home.  We took lots of pictures today and will be posting them on the blog in the next week.

This evening for dinner we had a representative from UGWA come and speak to the group about what her organization is doing to help improve the water conditions in the county.  She went on to explain what our group will be involved with tomorrow, a trail and lake clean up outside of Baileysville with the local community.  She shared a lot of information and shared the wonderful tuna salad meal with us.

As the summer continues to wind down, for reflection we were asked to reflect on endings and beginnings, in our day and in the summer.
