    The work was great, our coordinator was too. We hammered a lot of nails, let me tell you. Thanks to Chuck, Collen, Jenn and Laura. (I hope I remembered the names correctly~ sorry if not)

    I'm disappointed there were so many no shows, we could have gotten that front porch roof done.

    Folks it is looking more and more like I will have to work this weekend due to a work deadline. I have to opt out for now because I'm just not sure how the rest of the week will pan out, but if I wind up having time I will attend.

    Used to do this a lot in Charlotte. Once the location gets verified please advise on what skills may be needed and what tools may be needed as well.
