The house is quite now, but it was a beehive of activity the past week with so many of our amazing volunteers buzzing around inside and out. The week started with beautiful weather and it continued throughout the week. Temperature were warm but not unbearable, and...

Day One

Today was Day One of this year’s Volunteer Week. The weather was gorgeous with a cool breeze, blue skies, reasonable temperatures and low humidity. For those who have been here for past Volunteer Weeks, you know how rare that kind of weather is. We began with Morning...
