On April 25, 2009 many dozens of volunteers gathered in River Park to do work on the homes of needy citizens.
Around 7:00 AM, the House Captains reported and registered, grabbed a quick snack and headed to their assigned home.
"Our" home was located on 26th St. Volunteers would arrive about 8:00AM from Notre Dame, Our Redeemer and First Unitarian Churches.
Before the volunteers arrived, I attempted a rough inventory of supplies. Some things were missing and other needed items were identified as the day went on. My Sector Captain was former Building Commisioner Don Fozo. He made sure we got what we needed.
Our clever carpenters designing an inovative solution to supporting a sagging shelf and clothes rod for the master bedroom closet.
The garage gutters were completely cleaned.
The garage extension trim was clad in new aluminum, the gutters cleaned and rehung with better support and a new downspout was added.
Painting the support posts completed the project.
The week prior, professional carpenters built a small deck with steps for the rear entry. Our volunteers stained the new structure.
