On Saturday, a mighty crew from St. Paul UCC in Waterloo arrived at DuBois Center eager to serve. They departed with sore muscles and a well-deserved sense of satisfaction! After dividing into work groups, they got straight to it. One team’s primary task was priming and painting; the other team worked on storm clean-up – both priority projects. With chainsaws, goggles and masks in place, they cut and hauled fallen trees and branches from the heavy winds in early August. They primed and painted 25 posts for the fence on the road across the dam. Now all the needed fencing materials are ready for installation!
After enjoying a picnic lunch together – physically distancing of course – the teams joined forces. They hauled and stacked wood from trees cut previously near Coveside Cottage and set up the 9-Square for an upcoming guest group – both tasks that are better done with many hands.
