Hard working group

Filed under: Cef trip — Neil @ 2:23 pm

The day began with breakfast & then orientation @ 7:45.

The sr adults are working in the mailbox club.

The youth, Linda Vander Molen, Amanda & I are working with the facilities department.

This morning we cleaned the grounds of all limbs. We filled 5 dump truck loads (Amanda has been driving the truck). We had to cut a few limbs & I managed not to harm anyone with the chainsaw.

After lunch the group got a special assigent. A recently built retaining wall collapsed this weekend and our job was to excavate the landscape stones that had made up the retaining wall. The problem was that gravel was covering the stones. It was tough work, but we completed the assignment.

While working on the wall a youth that shall remain nameless(louis & Jo Ann Goff’s granddaughter) asked “why they would cover the wall up with rocks, especially if they wanted us to remove the wall?”

We are now off to relax at the pool.
