Are you ready to venture beyond the boundaries of Silver Lake? Do you know how to swing a hammer, or have you ever wanted to learn? Come spend a week volunteering at H.O.M.E. Co-op in rural Orland, Maine. We will build homes, do farm work, and cook in a soup kitchen as we experience what it means to love our neighbors. We’ll also explore the Maine coast with a visit to Acadia National Park. No prior construction experience is necessary, but be sure to bring a great attitude and a desire to work hard! Transportation to Maine is provided. An advance meeting will be held for parents and conferees on Sunday, May 7, at 2 p.m. in the Connecticut Conference Office in Hartford. Deans: Brad, Susie, & Libby Craig
