First, the head of the Boys and Girls Clubs thanked the volunteers, then there was a bit of calisthenics, and finally, we headed off to construct and paint benches, or work on a wide range of inspirational murals (one, unfinished, at the top of this post, and more, also works in progress, in the slideshow directly above).
That last slide was a photo of my team! You're not seeing me because I'm taking the photo. Aviva, to the left, is a writer and blogger on parenting issues at Parentopia, Kevin and his wife are recent converts to vegetarianism, with some amazing health benefits to report due to the change, and Maria is hard at work on getting that mural done for the Club. We had a great time!
