Last week, workers from Silver Birch Ranch came up here to hang out with the guys and work. When they got here Tuesday night, one of the firs things they did was play poker with the guys. The game lasted for about 45 minutes. Brian won! After that, they all played on the Wii until they went to bed. The next day, they worked with the guys in the dorm's attic. They cleaned it out and put up shelves for more storage space. Thanks guys! It was a great couple of days!
Last Friday night, a group of 5 people came up here. They were from Sharon Rickerson's church. They came to The Able Church's Friday night service then came up here. They stayed overnight and toured the grounds the next day.
Karol has been up in the finished dorm painting. She has been painting details and the cabin's name in the bathrooms.
They look amazing!
Trish has been settling in. Karol has been showing her how to do the kitchen stuff. On Saturday, she made breakfast for the group from Sharon's church. It was a continental breakfast with muffins, bread, yogurt, and coffee.
Marceaux has been pretty busy. He and the guys went to town the other day to sand and salt from town to put on the walkways. It was just in time too with the warmer weather we've been having and then the freezing and the snow. He has also been hanging lights in the unfinished dorm. Right now there is just a light bulb hanging from the ceiling. He has been replacing those with light fixtures. Also, the skid steer's hydraulic system was broken. He's been fixing that.
Jen, Trish, Molly, and Justin have been entering in addresses of group homes and adult family homes into the address book. We are going to be sending the brochure that Tony and Karol made specifically for group homes out to the group homes. Justin printed off a list of every group home and adult family home in Wisconsin. Now they just have to be typed into the computer.
