The VCP's first Community Workday was a memorable one, held last Saturday, June 2. We were blessed with a beautiful morning and nearly 50 volunteers--all who arrived eager to work, with tools in hand. A huge pile of yard debris was a testament to the many, many man hours of work that were accomplished in one short day. Thank you to all who participated, lent their tools, trucks, trailers, and their weekend hours! It was a special way to get rolling with our rebuilding efforts and make new friends (while working up a sweat).
Volunteer Roslyn Bradford couldn’t wait to get to work and marveled at how great it was to be surrounded by others with the same enthusiasm. “It just over an hour, you could look around and notice a remarkable difference,” said Bradford. “It was a ton of work, but just special to be out there meeting neighbors for the first time, creating community.”
