Not even a Friday “70% chance of rain” forecast curtailed the ambitions of our Springtime volunteers. They arrived in full force to cloudy morning skies when we were singing Alleluias to no rain but, unfortunately the weather forecasters were proved accurate, first with drizzle, then pouring rain, mixed in with spurts of sunshine, and then even hail. Through it all, smiles and persistence prevailed among our undaunted raking teams. Thanks to the efforts of 77 volunteers consisting of the OFA Boys’ Varsity Lacrosse Team, Blessed Trinity and St. Patrick Youth Group and many wonderful adult and youth volunteers from the community, we were able to complete outdoor work at 35 residences in Owego and Apalachin.
