Our Little Corner of the World...

As I mentioned in the last few blogs...
Our Little Corner of the World  (Mammoth Lakes and Bishop CA)...
went south of the border this past weekend to 
build a house in a day...

The project was sponsored by the Mammoth Lakes Noon Rotary Club,
 with participants from Mammoth Lakes Interact (Rotary club at the high school),
Bishop Interact and Bishop Rotary.

Did I mention that the Mammoth Lakes Rotary Interact kids actually chose to 
build a house rather than attend the prom...
Now is that character building or what???

The Bishop kids may not have given up prom...
but they had fun getting into the act!!!

The whole motley crew...
and the family who received the new home...
(the three in center front, with the littlest in front, the older girl in pink and mom holding 
the yellow pad)
and a couple of neighbor kids too!!!
