Day one started out with threatening skies which soon cleared, bringing a hot, humid work day. After an amazing breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage and french toast, we divided into three work teams: one team to finish replacing a bathroom floor (led by Harry Baisden), one team to finish hanging some paneling and installing baseboards (led by George DeFilippi) and one larger team to scrape and paint an older house (led by Frs. Jeff and Paul).
After a gut-busting, starch-o-rama dinner of chicken and dumplings, we took a celebratory trip to Walmart in Grundy! Who says we don’t know how to have fun? We ended the day with a brief service of compline on the front porch of the bunk house.
