Day 1 was a success on all accounts!
Despite the heat and sweat running down our faces, so much great work was done by everyone. Truly! – each of the youth had shining moments of teamwork, ingenuity, and persistence and both teams made a lot of progress on their projects.
Our evening program helped us better understand a little history of coal mining and how the industry collapse has affected the area.
We ended the evening with some town festivities and fireworks right outside our building.
In the photos, you’ll see the younger group enjoying treats from an Icee truck that stopped by their site (yes, please!) and the older group who got a picture with the lovely homeowners whose house we’re working on.
