First Summer Group has Arrived!

Timothy Nurnberger

We have just arrived back in La Plant after a 12 hour round-trip to Rapid City in the #bigredbus.  We are pleased to inform you that the group from East Haddam, CT, has arrived safely at the Community Center, they've eaten tacos (expertly prepared by Gaby), and are inflating their beds for sleep - which I presume will come soon.  (Don't worry future groups, we stopped a lot.  The drive in the bus is about 4 hours and we stop every hour to stretch!)



There is a lot to do this week.  We are tackling a number of projects around the Community Center, and our primary housing work will be replacing an entire roof (80' x 16').  All the supplies are stacked and ready to go!  We'll also be hosting three town-wide meals, including a barbeque of buffalo burgers tomorrow night.

It is tremendously hot.  So we will update again soon, when the sweat stops dripping on the keyboard!

Stay tuned...
