It’s a Male Thing!

Is it really? I have seen women there as well! We are talking about the well tried tradition of volunteer workdays on Saturday mornings here at church. Our women have been an inseparable part of this as well, and nobody knows this better than Ellen Hamilton, who has joined this group on more than one occasion. However, it is also true that these Saturday mornings have provided special occasions for camaraderie and bonding among us men.

On Nov 21st, we had a particularly successful workday. We took out the Steyntie Heyer tombstone, as Gary’s article describes. We also built a corral for our garbage bins on the side of the Church House. We hope to keep the kitchen a little freer from garbage cans, and we hide their unsightly sight in the front yard. Look at the pictures and see what a productive day it was. Special thanks to Julius Fekete for planning, preparing, and organizing the material.

Great thanks to Jim Hance, who poured concrete two days later in order to secure the five fence posts.

Other helpers on Nov 21st included Ellen and Bruce Hamilton, John Coakley, David Waanders, Rod Gray and I. Joan Fekete provided coffee and cookies for everybody.
