WORKCAMPNE
February 15, 2011

I have been a part of workcampne for 12 years and will continue to be a part of this amazing experience for the rest of my life. I love giving back to people who are less fortunate. It's a heart warming experience getting to know the residents whose house you are working on. Especially when at the end of a long week, you take a step back and look at what you have accomplished......for someone else :-) "Labor Of Love" is our motto. We have an opportunity to share our love with others by serving them and meeting their needs.
This past summer we were in Sunapee NH and i worked on a house that needed painting. She was a single mom of two boys whose husband passed away from a bike accident. All she could say to our group was don't leave. The impact we left on her and the boys can not be described. I actually just sent her a letter and look forward to hearing from her and the boys.
I anxiously await for the next workcamp....it's 20 weeks and 5 days in Lebanon from today....not that i am counting:-)
