On the next morning the plan was to take another ATV ride to a different place to see some more of the Colorado mountain beautiful vistas,but as we were getting ready Lynn got a call to come to help to put a cement floor for a garage.
Rick & Connie Missionaries from Poncha Springs are building a garage to serve the community and do some car repairs for free , you bring the parts and Rick will do the work (what a guy),the garage floor was to be cemented and some help was needed.
Lynn & I drove down there leaving the girls at home to prepare dinner and joined other volunteers .
Needles to say that I have never done this kind of work but was happy to be a part of it,I meet great people that came together for a cause and even though we had to be on an ATV trip, I had a great time .
After the work of the day was done we were all invited by Connie to a long table to grab a plate and fill it with goodies that were served.
Despite a pain in my back from “hard labour” I felt like a part of the group that gives back to the community (even if it it is not mine),and it is a good feeling- an ATV ride can be done in another day….
It was great to see how people and kids come together from all over the place to help,one had to drive 10 hours one way….
Thank you Rick and Connie for this experience.
