After our first YAB meeting on Saturday August 20th, the new Team Leaders and some Youth Volunteers went on an adventure to find our meeting spot for Grahovac's. Many of us were at least 30 minutes late... a few were even an hour late!! The Youth and Team Leaders decided to take a wonderful tour of Kansas City, Kansas before the project. We weren't actually lost!!
When we all arrived we were quickly put to work. Some volunteers pulled weeds in the mud, leaving them covered in mud from head to toe. Others cut down a natural wall and did an amazing job clearing away the weeds! Two Team Leaders got poison ivy from their work at the garden!
Two of the Youth Volunteers gave us a service learning lesson and taught the group about Grahovac's Army and told us why it was so important to help!
In the end the project was a messy success!!
