Mormon Helping Hands

On Saturday, April 24th Travis was able to participate with Mormon Helping Hands. "Mormon Helping Hands is a priesthood-directed Church program for providing community service and disaster relief to those in need." This was a day that volunteers all across the US were preforming service in the communities in which they lived.
Travis was the group leader for Cottonwood Park. (In the picture is Bro. Climber)A group shot of the volunteers working at this park. There were several other LDS groups throughout different parks in Huber Heights. Huber Heights is the city our stake center is in. Originally when the brother that headed up this colossal project approached the Huber Heights city leaders for a day of service they thought we (our stake) could clean up one park. After the meeting the leaders when home and searched the Internet for this so called Mormon Helping Hands and realized that we (the LDS people) were capable of a much larger project. Therefore, when they met again with the brother the city had gave him a much bigger assignment!BEFORE picture of the dirt pile by the port-a-potty:

Everyone came home exhausted, but happy to do service. Travis was proud of the work that was accomplished. He does well in a team leadership position. Travis also enjoys a day of hard labor.
He snapped a few pictures of the purple flowers growing in the field.
