YNIA Visitors!

This week, we have some visitors! They drove all the way from Wisconsin (a place actually colder than Buffalo!). These volunteers are part of Young Neighbors in Action, a weeklong Catholic service learning experience that engages young people in the act of community service. This amazing group has already reglazed the windows, painted the sills, painted the foyer, repointed part of the foundation, caulked, finished a floor...the list goes on. And on. And on and on and on and on and...

Anyway, if you're looking to learn a bit more about housing rehab, want to troubleshoot a problem in your home, or are looking for a relaxed/fun environment, come and volunteer! In addition to workshops, the house is open for you to practice your repair skills almost everyday...show up and you'll be put right to work!

I can't believe it has been 4 months since we spent the week with you helping out. Things have been busy since we got back. I was just getting ready to scrapbook this weekend and came across the pictures we took while in Buffalo. It brought back a lot of memories. I had go out and check your blog. It is great to see the progress being made. Keep it up!
