Mormon Helping Hands!!! 2011

One of our all-time favorite events of the year!! This time the Williamsport, PA Stake held the event in Lock Haven, PA. We hit the streets and 'literally' painted the town! Painting garbage cans, picking up garbage, mulching park beds, trimming and tidying - what a grand difference 450 hands can make in a morning!!!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of driving through the town seeing groups of yellow jacketed 'family' in force all around. The joy of working together to better the world lingers on through the day and year, fond memories forever!!!

These pictures document part of the day starting at the lunch we ended with and working backwards through the morning. Love to all the wonderful people who put forth their hands to help here in PA!!!

It was SOOOOO rewarding Mom! I think I told you on the way home Paige was planning for the stake to hold it once a month at least! ;) The teens love it best of all and no wonder they are so capable with so much to give!
