Building Communities: Mission In Action
On May 9th, Volunteers came together to help two residents of Mt. Sterling, a resident in Timewell and the community of Ripley. With a great group of 53 volunteers ready to work, these homes and the Ripley Community Building received exterior facelifts and groundskeeping assistance. One home received a paint job! Other homes were power washed, gutters were cleaned, weeds were pulled and dead trees removed. Residents of Ripley joined in the volunteer effort to work on the community building. This was the sixth MIA project day. A second date in the fall of 2015 is being planned. If you know of an elderly or in-need neighbor that is unable to do these types of projects for themselves, please contact one of the planning committee members, including Jeff Summers, Becky Pruden, Jean Hulvey.
A special thanks goes out to the United Way of Brown County for financially supporting this project! Thank you to all the volunteers for giving of your time to help your neighbors and build your community!
