|Construction Volunteer Update|
Phew! You guys are really working hard. Our homes are really moving along quickly. You might not be quite as fast as this group
, but you are pretty speedy!
This is only slightly related to construction BUT...make sure you, your family and your pets stay safe during these hot and steamy summer days. Please remember to drink plenty of water even if you are not exerting yourself and take breaks so your body can keep up with your activities. Your pets are also very vulnerable so take shorter walks during cooler portions of the day and in shady areas if possible. And remember that your dog doesn't wear shoes so be mindful of walking on hot pavement or sharp stones that might injure their pads.
The build days are located to the left of this message!
