Wednesday, March 9, 2011

The rains came down pretty much all day, but thankfully all of our sites planned were indoor sites.  A crew headed back out to Hanover to sand off the mud that had been applied the previous two days and were able to get a coat of primer on so it is all ready to paint next week when Northern Illinios University arrives.

A second group headed up to Head Start to spend the day with the kids in Maben.  And the third and final group spent the day at the Food Bank unpacking and organizing all the boxes that were unloaded yesterday in preparation of distribution day.  We also made a trip to pick up a hospital bed that was being donated and ran it down to St. Vincent DePaul  for distribution.

In the evening, the students had another guest speaker as Val from UGWA came and talked about her organization as well as environmental problems in the area in preparation for HC's work the next day.

The evening concluded as we all headed up to St. John the Evangelists Church in Mullens for an Ash Wednesday Mass.
