Today we have a total of 31 volunteers, which will likely be our biggest day in Hamburg this year. We have volunteers from all over Iowa and Illinois flooding in to the job sight to take part. The Monday after Thanksgiving is always our favorite day–not just because so much takes place, but because we get fresh volunteers full of energy, and that energy is infectious. Those of us who have been working on the build since the Monday before Thanksgiving we’re certainly in need of an energy boost! Cold and windy days will soon be no bother, as our exterior work will likely be wrapped up by tomorrow evening. Pretty impressive considering the fact that there were no walls standing three days ago!
I say this every year, but it’s always true. We are so blessed to have willing hands and the skilled labor that show up at just the right moments.
