MLK Day of Service

I spent the day at Habitat for Humanity's building site on Edes Avenue, along with 25-30 other volunteers and the Habitat staff. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors and working with others. We got a lot done, and everybody I saw seemed to be having a good time. A lot of people were first-time volunteers, but hopefully not just one-time volunteers.

I enjoyed it, in part because we were doing mostly framing, and that's one of my favorite parts of construction. I'm a little stiff, so I imagine many of the first-time volunteers are really going to feel it.

What did you do for the MLK Day of Service?
