Everyone hard at work on a build.
Double and last build days of the trip in Prescott! We started our builds early and ended early to try and avoid as much of the heat as possible. Our first day, a group of us went to a site where a Habitat house was going to be built and we did the landscaping. We cleared the lawn to get it ready for the build. We then joined the other half of our team at another Habitat house to continue landscaping, this time to fix up the yard. We were sorting rocks and laying them out. The homeowner was on site, and actually doing a lot of the managing for us. She told us about her story and worked really hard with us. She is married and has 5 young children. They currently live down the street in a 2 bedroom house and pretty soon will be moving into their new 4 bedroom house. She was an extremely strong and hardworking woman and it was so great to be able to help her and her family out with their new home. The second day we painted the exterior of yet another Habitat home and worked on some of the landscaping. Also, some of the group went to another house in the morning to help out with the landscaping. Quite a lot of rock moving the past 2 days!
The Habitat chapter organized the most delicious pot luck dinner for us. We watched a video of some of the work they have been doing and we also presented to them about Bike & Build. The people were so great to talk with and were so appreciative of our work.
We also managed to fit in a Salvation Army prom while we were in Prescott. We put together some cheesy decorations and lovely outfits and had a grand time!
