|Getting assigned to an area at the beginning of the day.|
Each group that showed up were assigned to a specific area. We were assigned to the N59 (the main road that runs through our village). We filled up four big garbage bags full in about three hours over a one and a half mile section of road and still didn't get to a fourth of our assigned area as we ran out of time.
Since we were by a super busy road, I kept Elisha and Silas in the buggy the whole time. They did fantastic. I was so thankful for their contentment as I was actually able to be of help to the group. They provided us with song and conversation. They also like to yell "WHOAH!!!!" every time a big truck or bus goes by.
The event ended with a talk from Waterways Ireland and tea/coffee and scones. It was a great day and we were thankful to be able to come alongside everyone and help beautify our village.
