"The opposite of live is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference."
Elie Wiesel

It was another hot and humid day in Wyoming County. Volunteers were at four different sites throughout the county. Volunteers finished up the tiling in Lillydale. The bathroom looks fabulous!

Another group went to continue with the porch and the tiling in Oceana. The porch is almost finished, just one step left. All the underlayment is done in the kitchen, only the tile needs to be put down. As a little extra job today, volunteers cleaned out the aquarium at the house. It now looks sparkly clean.

A third group went back to the Itmann school house to continue work. A hard working group worked in the back continuing to dig the trench, while another group worked inside putting the bathroom back together and insulating the back wall. The back wall is now ready to have the drywall installed.

The final group stayed back at the school to run the basketball camps. The kids had a great time and learned new basketball skills. We look forward to another great day tomorrow.

The dinner tonight was terrific. We had pasta alfredo with broccoli and chicken, salad and homemade rolls. Everything was delicious!

The focus of reflection was on the Mother Theresa quote "We cannot do great things, only small thing with great love." We were asked to share something that was a small thing, but showed great love in doing it.
