Tumwater Teens - Last Day of Work - April 8, 2011

We worked 1/2 day today - laying laminate flooring, working on window casings, and doors. We stopped by the St. Bernard Project office at the end of the day and we were able to talk to Liz McCartney, co-founder of St. Bernard Project! Back to Washington tomorrow . . .

Painting done! The flooring and related supplies arrived, and we unloaded the truck - and then started installing the laminate flooring. . .

Tumwater Teens Spring Break Trip - April 7, 2011

At lunch today, we visited last year's work site. It had been a fitness center pre-Katrina. We spent five days in 2010 gutting the building and throwing away the debris and equipment. The pastor remembered us and has the picture we gave him hanging up in his office! The former fitness center will reopen as the Garden of Prayer Church. If we come back next year, he said he'd have a barbecue for us :)
