The two of us volunteered with
Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach County
at their Women Build Day.
Dozens of ladies reported for duty at the residential construction site in Boynton Beach.
When we weren't busy dodging the airborne sand and sawdust from the gloriously windy day, we assisted in building the support system that would eventually sustain the second floor trusses for the new house.
With hammers and nails, measuring tapes and circular saws, we performed our tasks with little skill but boundless energy.
We must make note of the tremendous patience and expertise displayed by our supervisors (George and Patrick), because without them to lead the way, this enormous undertaking would never have been possible!
They maintained their professionalism during every challenging phase, and managed to keep their cool when everything didn't go just exactly as planned (hey ... we women can't be perfect at absolutely everything now, can we?!?).
