Last Friday, September 20th was the fifth United Way Day of Action I helped coordinate at St. Lawrence Place. We hosted a group of nearly 40 volunteers from Intel. These incredibly generous volunteers in blue arrived in 2 groups to paint the porches of our residents’ homes. The morning shift was busy working hard as media crews came and went. Check out The State newspaper article spotlighting the Day of Service, Intel and St. Lawrence Place.

On Saturday, September 28th, Barnes & Noble hosted a book fair to benefit SLP. This was organized by Tamara King, our volunteer leader of the adult Book Club on campus, to raise money for purchasing future books for the club. Best-selling author Dori Sanders was on-hand to sign her books, and local TV anchor Janet Parker came by to read a story to the children.

I’m working from home this morning. One of my twins has a fever, so he’s out of daycare for the day. It’s particularly frustrating because his twin brother was out last week, with the same virus. One day last week Becca’s oldest had strep. He played at her feet scattering popcorn around her office, while she got a few things done before running out to disinfect her house. Finally, Jessica ran back and forth for two days with her own case of strep and a sick husband and daughter at home with a bug.
