Greetings from NOLA

Posted By: Annie & Lauren

Hello, parents!
We had a great first day in New Orleans after arriving safely on Sunday. We met the owner of the house we will be painting, Patrick. He was so thankful and eager to share a story with us. After a full day of working, we headed over to the Bolyards’ for a crawfish boil. We were able to meet Denise, founder of Beacon of Hope, and her husband Doug, who was manager of the Super Dome when Katrina hit. Their stories were incredible and made the reality of the devastation come to life for us. It has been a bit on the toasty side, but we’re working through it. Patrick even surprised us with freezie pops!

We are looking forward to finishing the job on his house and can’t wait to update you again soon!!
