Friday I'm in Love

To continue the weather report, today started out misty and cool, but turned into a beautiful sunny day by mid-afternoon.

Since it is the third Friday of the month, the students were able to help out with distribution day at the Itmann Food Bank. The students worked alongside the wonderful food bank volunteers packing boxes, bringing those boxes out to people's cars, helping clients pick out clothes and housewares and most importantly listening to stories.

After the food bank was over the NIU crew headed over to the house to help us move furniture to the St. Vincent DePaul warehouse. So much was accomplished in a very short time. After a quick climb up castle rock and a stop for ice cream at Dairy Queen, they headed back to Baileysville to rest up.

As is tradition, we had the group over to the PV house for a final meal and a closing reflection.

Thank you to NIU Newman Center for sending us another wonderful group of volunteers! We all had a wonderful week... on to Kansas and the PV Hoedown!

PS: To keep things interesting this week, each blog post title incorporated the day of the week in a song title.
