First, welcome to Jeanne and Allan who are also fulltimers. We met this fine couple last year while visiting our son in Alabama. Jeanne and Allen - We will be spending Thanksgiving again in Cullman if you will be in the area give us a shout! We would love to see you again.
We have now completed our second week of volunteering at Camp Dooley. This week Len and a couple of the other guys built a shed around the water pump out on the ball field. Then he took inventory of light bulbs that need changing and built benches at the ball field.
As for me - I spent most of the week power washing. But each morning while it was still somewhat cool, I painted directional signs. These signs were first routed by another volunteer, Andy.
The power washing included the chapel which was turning a lovely shade of green.
This area is full of pine trees that drop their large needles, causing mildew and dirt to build up. After power washing the chapel I did the sidewalk leading to it. This sidewalk is about 60 feet long. Here is a picture that shows my work in progress.
I was glad to power wash. If not, I would have to paint walls. And I HATE PAINTING WALLS. I know some day I will have to paint but fortunately I missed that bullet this time! Not every NOMAD hates to paint. Here are two fine ladies who did a super job on the conference center. This is Connie and Barb.
