Tell me and I forget...

Tell me and forget
Teach me and I may remember
Involve me and I learn.

Benjamin Franklin

Friday is traditionally the day that the PVs go into the community and work on projects that are not home repair. This week however, since we were moving in on Monday we had a combo of both home repair and "other" sites.

We finished our first site of the summer when we laid the last piece of rubber on the roof out in the Baileysville area. This was the site that was started in March so it was nice to finish the project.

Volunteers also continued to work at the the two other sites in the Maben and in Allyn Junction. We are close to finishing both, but they will continue into the new week.

For dinner we were treated to a wonderful meal of chicken marsala, lentil soup, pasta, salad and ice cream for dessert. Yum, yum, yum in the tum, tum, tum.

Since it is the end of the week and many volunteers are leaving in the morning, we capped off the week with a closing prayer service centered on the idea of light.
