C is for Can Do!

Do you need helping hands? Can do!

The Singles Ward is here for you!

We'll tote those 2x4's all day.

And bolt 'em down to make 'em stay.

(Our family ward works hard as well.)

This service stuff is pretty swell!

Can do, indeed! Early in the morning, so many of our young adults showed up to participate in community service that we had to reassign some of them to different projects. Mormon Helping Hands was in full swing last Saturday all over the State of California, and a lot of good work was done. Pretty neat!

To be honest, I've never met another community of people like the Mormons. We could all take a lesson from that.

This is a wonderful group of young people motivated to be useful to the community. When grown up people are so self centered it is magnificent to see these youngster setting a marvelous example. Lovely photos.

That is awesome!! It looks like everyone had a great time. We had a similar event a few months ago and it just made me swell with pride when I saw all the people from our ward who came out. Nothing like community service to build unity!!

Good post, Sue. Dick came home from our Helping Hands Day last Saturday so sore he could hardly move. I felt so sorry for him on Sunday because of course it is worse the next day. He is still hurting because after washing windows all the time he was at the Boys and Girls Club in Cathedral City, he has been doing a lot of work for me, including a short stint of window washing. He feels good though about being able to help. We had such a good turn out.

By the way, I thought you were going to change the music on this.
