The hot summer days and nights arrived on OBX this week. With no volunteers to cook for Ann & Linda came to Dean's to help paint and clean. Pastor Steve came by to say hey and decided to hang around and help. He also got a friend of his to help work on the eve trim. His daughter Melinda came over with her youth group to help clean up the yard. Her daughter Emmaline even watered the garden.
Since we didn’t have any volunteers wanting to spend the 4th of July at the beach we went home to swap trucks and a have quick visit with family. We returned on Thursday because the Harris family (Allen, Sue & nephew Cory) were due in on Friday. Then on Saturday the Deacon family (Molly, Sarah, Stephanie & John) came for a day trip. The two groups, along with Ann & Billy painted inside and out and worked on the wheelchair ramp. Molly and Cory helped Ann fix lunch on Saturday and even baked Snickerdoodle cookies. Ann has enjoyed after supper swimming with the Harris family in this heat.
