We did go to Windham. We hiked the first day, and the second.
On the third day we looked at each other and said 'think we should volunteer to do something?'
and the other one said 'sure'.
So we went downtown and asked if we could help in any way.
Sure, help was always appreciated.
So we cooked burgers and hot dogs and shish kebabs that were donated.
For all the workers digging in the mud, removing the garbage,
the home owners without power and a basement full of water,
and for the restaurant owners who had their places filled with mud,
and lost all their appliances.
And stood next to a little (figuratively) girl who is a college student home for the weekend,
who volunteered, even though her village was almost destroyed.
We made new friends, and I met a lot of people from the past.
These are the new friends, sisters, who grew up on the grounds of the house I now visit.
see the line? We think we served at least 500 meals for lunch.
And this is a glimpse of what the town looked/looks like.
We feel very lucky and grateful
