Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

May started off with a BANG … literally!
With hammers and nail guns in hand, two of the
P&H officers (Pam Dortch & Anne Scott-Brown)
participated in National Women’s Build Day
on Saturday, May 2nd.

Working in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity,
Pam and Anne were assigned to a
team with other women,
providing the interior trim for a home
in Delray Beach, FL.

Whether it was removing old trim,
installing an interior door,
or measuring and nailing baseboards in place,
the teams of unskilled female laborers
(supervised by the knowledgeable
and very patient project foremen)
completed the interior trim installation.

What we lacked in skill, we made up for in enthusiasm!
If we found that the hallway was
too crowded to walk through,
then a nearby window worked just as well!

The large group of volunteers worked side-by-side
with members of the very worthy family
as well as veterans from the Habitat headquarters.

The knowledge and friendships that were gained
made for a truly enriching experience.
