One of the best parts about our SOWER work is that you never know just what exactly you’ll be doing each month. And while sometimes the job you get lasts for the entire three weeks of the project, as often as not there is a nice variety of things to do. Such was the case on our first week at Life for Youth Camp!
Mondays are always a bit of a jumble as everyone gets their assignments (especially since there are 10 couples here),
but when all the dust settled I was tasked with finishing up the window washing that didn’t quite get done last month.
(That’s Linda, my window washing buddy).
We wrapped up the window washing by break time on Tuesday, so we moved to pillow stuffing!
All winter long one of the faithful SOWER volunteers (JoAnn) works on sewing these 10″ autograph pillow covers together with cute flannels on one side and solid white on the back (for the autographs). These pillows are a hot item with the summer campers! This trip JoAnn brought over fifty pillows ready to stuff.
It’s a great job for when you have don’t have quite enough time to start a new project, but you still want to be busy!
Painting. Painting bleachers. Painting bleachers in the sun.
Seemed pretty direct, but it was a little more complicated than it looked at first glance –
Hello from the underside!
While there was still painting to do, there was also more window work. This time it was scraping off the old reflective film so new could be applied.
That’s Ola – the other part of our scraping team! Next week we’ll have to work on the new film!
So what was Gary doing all week? He was spending time on the golf course.
These guys are rebuilding all 18 holes on this mini-golf course.
Another team was refurbishing the chicken coup!
This is a large property, and as you can see there is always something that needs to be done!
All I know is that it will be starting with no alarm. 🙂
