Today we had more than 30 volunteers from St. Scholastica Academy in Covington out at our South Salcedo rebuild site as we prepare for an Open House on Saturday. Thanks to all who made the trip and helped out, as well as the school for a generous donation to YRNO!
John Harty was one of the chaperones for the students. He says he participates in rebuilding efforts a few times a year, and believes in making progress one house at a time.
“It aids the city when people can move into houses like this and become a part of our community.”
Well said, John!
Working inside and out, all in one shot.
The opposite angle, but no luck seeing inside.
Bottom half of the same ladder.
And now our star duo paints pipe under the house…
Yes, we did have more exterior painters.
Don’t sit on that wet paint!
This is too much fun!
Let’s go back inside for a bit. Let there be light!
Giving the sink a good scrub…
…and listening to 50 Cent in da tub. (True dat.)
We painted inside too.
Back outside to cut some wood with Chris.
Last stop: stump removal.
Let me show you how it’s done.
Keep going, team!
We’ll just watch you.
Has everyone else given up?
