MMDC, end of first work day

Today we went to volunteer at 8:30. Had to attend a mandatory safety meeting in the chapel with Warehouse Supervisor Mark Freeman. Then we began our duties. After the morning break some went on a tour of the facility, while Karen and I jumped right in and started tracing and cutting out patterns for hospital gowns.

There's a new pattern for a V-neck boy's top that uses regular cotton/blend woven fabric because so many people don't like to sew on the single knit like is used in the original design. We'll be bringing the new patterns home for volunteers to sew in America's Hometown.

Carl & I were in charge of lunch, and we had sliced ham, turkey, or roast beef with provolone or swiss cheese, pork'n'beans, homemade potato salad, chips, carrot sticks, grapes, bananas, cookies or mini-donuts. If you are in charge of lunch, you have to say grace and clean up, too.

Carl helped the team from Indianapolis assemble PDKs (Personal Dignity Kits).

Cindy and Christi worked on school desks up in the wood shop.

Jay and Jim worked on changing the filters in the dust vacuum for the wood shop.

Susan cuts out patterns for hospital gowns.
