Saying Goodbye to Volunteers Stephanie and Justin
On Saturday at La Giraudière, we sadly had to bid farewell to our hardworking volunteers Stephanie and Justin as they continue on their trip around the world. The Canadian couple was here for two weeks, and during their stay, they performed quite a bit of grueling labor, from gardening to taking down the second-floor wall. Just before their departure, they helped Paul knock down the bricks that had cracked the wall during the storm. Stephanie worked hard gathering fallen bricks and cleaning the debris-covered floor, and Justin loaded the heavy bricks into the van.
Steph and Justin were not only hard workers, but also great cooks. While they were here, we had a wonderful Mexican night, as well as a delicious dinner of chicken curry. We will miss their enthusiasm and dedication to their work everyday, in addition to their scrumptious food!
For the next leg of their trip, Steph and Justin are off to Liverpool in the UK, but we hope they will return to La Giraudière sometime in the future. We wish the two volunteers the very best in all their adventures to the four corners of the world!
