catholic heart work camp #4

here’s another grateful tribute to
the Catholic Heart Work Camp –
90 kids from all over our land poured
into town last week were divided into
small groups did chores big and small
built a handsome fence around Enos
Park’s apple orchard (its odd location
made it a magnet for fly-dumping; I
suggest we now plant milkweed amongst
the trees for monarchs); they tore down
a shed did much much more – at my house
both porches were washed and painted;
weeds cut; bushes trimmed; choking
vines cleared in the school’s parking lot   
– their last eve they had a gala show at
Sacred Heart-Griffin auditorium I went
with David Knoepfle’s folks; he plus a
co-leader yearly host this help-freely-given  
influx (I found from my crew each kid must
raise 400 bucks for the unique privilege of
working for us for no pay) – anyway how
did the kids have any oomph left for a
raucous – and often moving – show? we
much enjoyed! so thanks to all especially
the gang that toiled at my house: Melissa,
Pat, Brigid, Kaylee, Rachel, Olivia, Leslie
