Volunteer Day
Posted in Warm and Fuzzy
Afternoon watch, 7 bells (3:59 pm)

One day a year, the company I work for gives us a day off as long as we use it to volunteer in the community. This year, many of us got together and volunteered our time with Habitat for Humanity North Idaho. They have a small development with about a dozen homes in Post Falls. Several of us did landscaping work, and the rest of us stained a fence. The fence was several hundred feet long, surrounding the entire community, so it was a bigger job than it sounds. Unfortunately, we ran out of stain twice, and the second time it was too close to quitting time to get more, so we had to leave the job unfinished, but it would only take a single person an hour or two to finish.

We had lots of drinks and a pizza lunch, but the feeling of helping people out is the best part of the day.

    I had volunteer day at work today too -- spent it pulling ivy in a forest. Not bad.
