Farmington Valley Association on the Reservation 2013: Blog #3

Timothy Nurnberger

Hi everyone! This is Beth and Elsa. We cannot believe that it is already Thursday. So far the group has worked on multiple projects including: building storage garages, new raised garden beds, raising a new pavilion for the community center, and multiple clean-ups of the grounds. It feels like we have given everything a big jump start for the summer. The highlight of each work day has been when the big red bus pulls in in the afternoon with Bryan and the kids for camp. On Monday, the first day of camp, it was fun to see adults and children working side by side on decorating the fun foam name tags with glitter, pompoms, and craft paint. It was messy fun!

The children of La Plant are beautiful in each individual way. We are truly grateful and proud to be working with Simply Smiles in helping the people of La Plant. We are impressed with the Simply Smiles staff, and humbled by their commitment and compassion. We are looking forward to the Friday night community cookout under the soon-to-be-finished pavilion. This has been a rich experience and it will be hard to leave!
