Marianna, FL – Weekly Report – March 29-April 2, 2021

April 1, 2021

Our six long term volunteers for the month of March made great progress on our houses. This week they insulated, painted and caulked; hung doors and trimmed windows; installed baseboard and closet shelving and built a porch. They were joined by Norene Horst from Atmore AL.

On Saturday Bruce Kindy, Jack Tillotson, Dave and Marian Mininger, Steve and Christa Barth left Marianna to return to Ohio, Minnesota, Virginia and North Carolina. Tina Miller, our head cook for March also returned home to Indiana.

Long term staff joining us on Saturday were Vern and Joyce Geissinger, crew leader and assistant cook and Joetta Schlabach. Joetta will shadow our head cook Em Yoder and office manager Don Yoder.

Next week five young men from Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan will join us as weekly volunteers. They will focus on framing one of our houses.
