It was a very crisp and clear Saturday morning in Norwalk. The group came together then everyone bowed their heads as one prayed for divine guidance and safety on the job. The devotional leader reminded all how fortunate she felt to have the opportunity to serve others.
Who were these people? They came from all walks of life a retired farmer, a telephone supervisor, two former nurses, a recent high school graduate, a construction volunteer, a former doctor, a teacher, a car mechanic, a McDonald's employee and two partner family members.
They found themselves united in purpose and resolute to work together as a team. On that particular Saturday they installed dry wall in the new Firelands Habitat for Humanity house. Even though their skill levels ranged from a first-timer to seasoned volunteers, the Habitat construction supervisor was more than happy for their volunteer time and efforts.
All were needed and appreciated.
