|Last night under the cover of darkness - we did some vigilante love downtown and picked up over 1,000 cigarette butts at the Winston-Salem Bus Terminal|
WE ARE ROLLING
|On Friday after class, the Fellows helped paint the new City with Dwellings building (top floor of Douglas Battery) Last time I was there, I was with Adventure Guides and we had an urban nerf gun war (we found several pieces of evidence! Ha!!!)|
THE WEEK THAT WAS
Monday Round Table at John and Mary Spangler's (and Tim's)
|Tim and JM|
We had an awesome time Monday with the Spanglers. I love how they jump right in and become part of the crew.
|Hef and two girls praying on the porch|
Leader Lunch with Steve Lineberger at Winston-Starts
|Steve rocked it|
Steve is a Fellows exemplar. I love what ain't easy - simple. So thankful for him.
Too Much Ned - Steve and I saw each other almost every day this week! Ha! At Jack Larson's (un-birthday party), at Leader Lunch, at Village Juice, and at 500 W. 5th's Ribbon Cutting. Ha! It might have been too much Ned - but it sure wasn't too much Steve. Love this guy!
|At the crack of dawn, I dropped off my sweet girl for the 7th Grade Charleston trip|
That night, I went to Camp Hanes for the YMCA Board Retreat. I learned one thing - if I go hunting with a bow and arrow - it better be for elephants! Ha!
SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE!!!!
We found out Bailey Yerby said YES TO US! Woo Hoo - first Fellow of the 2020-21 Class!!! And I already know it is going to be a great year!!!!!!

What a fun night we had with our Host Families at Shannon Rainey (who hosted a day after knee surgery!)
We left truly encouraged by this group of amazing individuals. Thank you Host Families! You are the secret sauce to what makes this program great! We love you!!!!
