We continued to sand the walls in Ms. Deborah’s house. Never a dull moment! Around noon time, the tornado siren sounded and the weather radio advised us to take shelter immediately! We decided the bathroom area was the safest place, so three of us climbed into a newly installed bathtub and rest of us sat on plastic drums nearby. When the all clear sounded we continued sanding. I have attached a picture of a very “dusty” Becky Clark who was clearly hard at work throughout the day.
Around 4:00 pm the four men volunteers from Raywick, Kentucky arrived at the house and joined us for a wonderful supper prepared by Sisters Renee and Claire. We were all ready to ‘hit the hay’ early.

Today is the women’s last day on the job. Our arms are growing very weary as we continue to sand. The men in our volunteer group will continue working at the Clementine’s home as they install wallboard and bathroom appliances. Tonight our group will feast on good Cajun cooking at Mulate’s restaurant. Mulate’s is known as the original Cajun restaurant, famous for preserving and celebrating the food, music and culture found in the small towns and along the bayous of south Louisiana.
