Tentative Work Schedule

A gratifying number of folks have volunteered to help with construction; finally, we have some dates and needs to be met.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll admit that since the trailer was moved from Blessed Sacrament Church to the Liberty House driveway last Saturday, I’ve been staying in the apartment I don’t officially vacate until June 1. I try to be responsive to Liberty House residents, but sleeping within arm’s reach of the house is a bit much.

Below is a tentative work calendar for the next two weeks. If you’re able to volunteer, we’d love to have you.

Keith Howard: Leaving a job I love By KEITH HOWARD A few weeks ago, I had an awakening.
