October 25 is the National Make a Difference day. On this day, thousands of people from across the United States will participate in community service on the 25th. This year my club kids and I are painting in the paint-a-thon for the needy and the elderly. This past Saturday we did the prep work for the house we are going to paint. We cleaned the yard, trimmed the tree, and taped off the windows . In the middle of the work, the homeowner, his daughter and son-in-law came by to see how much work was done. The little old man was staying with his daughter because his wife who had alheizmer disease broke her shoulder when she fell. Since the old man’s eyesight was failing he needed help so his daughter came to get them. He was such a sweet old man. We are excited to paint the house on the twenty-fifth and to see his reaction!
