    Can I get a reminder where the breakfast joint is? If my babysitter doesn't cancel I'll be there.

    Rude's Main Street Café is west off Hwy 35 in beautiful downtown Siren. Turn at the Pheasant Inn. Not sure if your coming from the north or the south.

    Thanks to all who made it happen today for Interfaith. We processed a lot of wood in a short amount of time! It was nice to meet Ryan'smiling. hopefully he liked the taste of the kool-aid and will back for another drink! Hopefully pictures from others will follow soon!

    Thanks for posting the pics Gingrsnap! For some reason the breaktime picture you are referring to is MIA. Perhaps someone who used my phone to take pictures because her's was "dead" might know where the missing pictures ended up!!!!

    WetGunPowder: I promise I did not delete the photo. I was actually looking forward to seeing it! Dave and I had worked so hard in the morning we were getting rejuvenated for the next stint....guess we were the only ones that were going 110%......hmmmm. No seriously. I didn't delete it and loved working with such an awesome crew!!

    Great News! Weyerhaeuser has awarded Interfaith Caregivers (Heat-a-Home) a grant for $500.00!! This is a program called the WAVEs Employee Volunteer Grant program. Weyerhaeuser is very community minded and supports it's employees with volunteer efforts. I submitted this grant request in the end of November and received notice just yesterday of the award!.. The award letter says that Interfaith should receive the check in 7-10 business days. More for the second trailer!
