Wrapping it Up in Dade City

We finished our one-week build with the Care-A-Vanners yesterday.  In addition to the fun work on the two homes, we went out to dinner as a group at a local place in nearby Zephyrhills:  Maine-ly New England.
The food was excellent and the price was great.

Since it was our last day yesterday, the affiliate provide lunch for us at the work site.  Then I got some pictures of our group.  Moving along clockwise, we have Scotty and Lynn, Mary Ann and Art, John and Janie and Diane and Greg.
Also Steven and Janet, Lois and Stuart, Peggy and Dale with Donna and Ken.
A couple of single ladies were one the team:  Laurie and Arlien.  Then we had a couple of longer term snow birds who spend the winter here working with the local Habitat group, Jerry Ernie and then Pam and I.
 The work crew was great.  Jerry was the construction supervisor and has that exceptional ability to teach and give everyone productive work according to their experience and ability.  It was really great to work with these guys.
And a group shot:
Later in the afternoon, we went to another Habitat home for a dedication.  They had a very nice ceremony and agenda prepared.
A TV station from Tampa interviewed the new home owner and she also received a quilt from some ladies in the area.
There was a good turnout from the local area  and it was a real treat to get to see a dedication ceremony.

It was another great week with Habitat  and now we head south to Miami for a few days.  Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.  And thanks for the nice comments.  Keep them coming!  Until next time...


  1. Hi Randy & Pam

    I couldn't help but notice in the pictures that most, if not all, the volunteers look physically fit. No big stomach or vastly overweight workers.

    That's good to see and unusual it these times.

    My wife and I look forward to volunteering in the future!

    Thanks for doing your part for America. :-)

  2. what a nice ending to a busy day/and week...this is something Rick and I would love to do...enjoy your time at your next stop...

  3. The house looks so nice, and just in time for Christmas. What a great accomplishment. The family must be just overwhelmed with your generosity.

  4. I didn't know Paul left a msg but I totally agree with him. Great job! Our church in Ohio sponsors and builds a HH each summer. Great way to give back.
