Do you know how to swing a hammer? Or have you ever wanted to learn? At Silver Lake we learn to love our neighbors, and at Hammer and a Nail we take that love on the road! Join us for a week of volunteering at H.O.M.E. Co-op in rural Orland, Maine. Together we will build houses and do work projects in homeless shelters, on a farm, in a daycare center, and wherever else our hands are needed. After work, you?ll also have a chance to cool off in the river, sing songs around a campfire, and even take a day trip to Acadia National Park. No prior volunteer experience is necessary, but come ready to work hard and have a ton of fun in the process. If you have a care in the world, you have a gift to bring! Transportation from Connecticut to Maine is provided, and an informational meeting for participants and families will be held this spring. Deans: Libby Craig, Brad & Susie Craig
