This is Lawrence Perdomo and Stephanie Garcia. Today was an exciting and tiring day; however, we were able to do what we had to do to be successful in our very first CAP (Community Action Project) Day. We started off with a 6:00 AM wake up call and had to be ready by 6:30 but, that was only the beginning of a long and adventurious day. We went to a community high in the mountains to start our CAP. We divided into three teams; Park, Trash and Stories.
Park: This team spent the whole day digging and and expanding the play area. This team plans to add a set of swings and monkey bars to the only swing set that currently stands. Their goals are also to make a successful and safe playground that can be untilized by the community.
Trash: This team was trying to improve the community’s garbage problem. They started building a compost bin to burn all of the left over scraps. They also re-painted the community’s waste management system and built a new one.
Stories: This team spent their day interviewing four of the locals that have had an impact on the community. Those interviews are later going to be turn into stories for a book that the locals can read and that represents their background.
This was an amazing day and we hope to have more days like this.
