Gotta love a small community
This is such a nice community - clean - friendly people - and helpful people. Yesterday morning several pickups pulled up to the curb in front. They were all filled with high school kids, rakes and push brooms. There must have been 10-12 kids. Wish I had taken time to count them. They proceeded to rake my lawn, removed the debris that they raked up, and then several of the girls used the brooms to sweep all the sidewalks and my side of the driveway. It all probably took them about 15 minutes! I don't have a huge yard but it is a real chore for me to get out there to pick up sticks or rake. Every spring the school does this as part of their community service. I don't know how my name got on their list, but I sure do appreciate it! I wonder how many yards they raked yesterday. I do know they got right down to business and didn't stand around or goof off. They are good kids, good workers, and they didn't even get paid for doing it. I love small town living!
