Before we'd even gotten back to our computers after our event yesterday, we'd received a thank-you note from the resource coordinator at Community Action House. We'll follow up with a more complete summary of the day, but this note captured the spirit, so we wanted to pass it along:
"A little note to express a big ‘Thank You’ to you and all the ladies who served our community today. I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful crew of women [on...] Pine Avenue. This home is a transitional housing residence maintained by Community Action House. I saw other women working on various projects throughout our city. How sweet is that!
"Kristen, Kristi, Karen and Amy were willing workers and did a great job of painting doors, trim, a pillar and an upper level deck railing with lots of spindles. Their great work was only overshadowed by their positive and pleasant attitudes. They did a splendid job and even performed a great cleanup of the area and tools from the job. They jokingly challenged me to attend the breakfast next year as they related that there were no men attending this year’s breakfast. How sad. I will do my best to attend the 2011 Women’s Service Day breakfast.
"Please feel free to pass on this ‘Thank You’ from Community Action House to those you feel would like/need to read it. You ladies are THE BEST!"
