Our Powerful Home Team
The warm welcome for the Bay Leaf Builders (who traveled 2 hours there and back seven times to do both the handicap ramp and the front porch) included coffee and breakfast in the mornings and a full meal in the middle of the day, provided by the team of Ms. Janet Cary (who cooked but had to go to work so missed the picture!) and Ms. Gracie George, Ms. Stella Barden, and Ms. Carolyn Greene. In some of the previous trips, Ms. Barbara Troy, Ms. Mary Simmons and Mrs. Kenneth Todd provided the feast.
Bay Leaf's project leader, Dick Wilkinson, brought a pint of bar-b-que for each of the ladies to show his appreciation for them preparing food for their lunch. Dick also expressed gratitude to Ocie Jones, saying " I cannot say enough about how much help Ocie has been to our team. He always had the materials available when we needed them. We would not be completed without his help." Of course, Vince Spaulding has been on hand for every step of the project, traveling from Durham to meet the team, record it all in photos, organize the logistics and schedule, often juggling many different elements to make it happen. A spirit of "can do" and a heart of generosity has been evident in every part of the
project, and it is bearing great fruit.
