They are 50 strong

Monday morning orientation back at the park -- even if it was a bit foggy. By the afternoon the sun was out and all 50 of our volunteers were enjoying every minute.
This week they came from Connecticut, Kansas and Pennsylvania along with a couple from Canada who stayed for another week.
We have them divided into 10 different homes so both Monty and I are running around like crazy but considering everything it's been a great day.
They are painting and installing crown molding at Brian and Carol's, digging more drainage ditches at Carol's, installling bath flooring and gutting Mel and Billie's kitchen, putting together a plan to unclog Martha and Steven's washer, painting at Thresa's, installing garage doors at Jocelyn's, taping and mudding sheetrock at Rosaland's, installing a tub and hanging more sheetrock at Joyce's and also installing a shower at Allan and Rosemary's. Try keeping up with all that! But they are and it's awesome!
Can't wait to see what Tuesday brings as they are planning on starting to paint the exterior of some of those homes! That's when the color comes alive and so does the homeowner!
Until next time . . . Oh yea --- we found out "our" cat who has truly been enjoying her house both day and night -- actually belongs to the neighbors 2 trailers down! We did the right thing and took the cat house, complete with all her food to them this evening and hope they will take much better care of her than they have been doing! Breaks our hearts but you gotta do what you gotta do -- still stinks!!!!!!!!!!!! Atleast she has a great home to have her babies in!
Until next time . . . be a blessing to someone you know (or don't know) Susan and Monty
