Our 5th Volunteer of the Season Flies the Nest.
Angel, our very first Puerto Rican volunteer, sadly leaves us this evening.
During his three week stay at La Giraudière, Angel has been a great help with decorating our lobby, removing and revamping our window shutters and doing LOTS of work around the garden. He also cooked two meals for all of the volunteers for two consecutive weeks, the first meal being a Sunday roast with a Puerto Rican twist to it and the second being a creamy chicken pasta. He showed initiative every day and always kept himself busy (even working on our days off!)
We want to thank Angel not only for his physical help around La Giraudière but also for his constant positive attitude and unique way of looking at life that really rubbed off on the other volunteers. It was a pleasure for all of us to see his guaranteed smile every morning and his sense of humour continuously had all of us in stitches.
As one of his main aims for coming here was to learn French, after weekly French lessons and lots of homework, we hope he now feels a bit more confident in speaking French to his current neighbours and new friends in Paris where he currently lives.
La Giraudière appreciates everything you have done over the past 3 weeks. You will be missed, Angel!
