What could be better than celebrating the end of 2007 than volunteering with TBS school? This last Sunday of 2007 a group of people have gathered at the school to assemble the furniture that the school ahs recently acquired. Now we can feel proud of our little “shul”! It is completely refurnished and painted fitting the needs of our young students and our volunteer teachers.
Everything began at 10 am. just a couple of cars outside in the parking lot, but some people inside in the classrooms making all the arrangements to put the white boards on the wall and assembling the tables. After a while we had a nice group of 11 people. Some of us were just distributing the new furniture to the different classrooms and other volunteers were downstairs arranging the new tables.
During the 3 hours than we have been together we had the opportunity to talk about tools, tell jokes that cannot be repeated here and to even have a discussion about poker and men stuff. In the meanwhile. As you can judge from the picture, one of the walls were stronger than what we thought originally and they required some extra holes. Who knows when this note will be read again! As someone suggested, maybe in 20 years when we will replace the white boards for digital holographic boards the next generation of leaders of TBS will find out the note and the holes. [ The text says “If at first you do not succeed…”]
In conclusion, I am glad I have stopped by to keep an eye on these people and take some pictures to share with you. Next time it may be you!
