Alpha Phi Omega Paints

Twelve members of Alpha Phi Omega spent their Saturday on 9 April painting.  The four benches they painted badly needed attention.

Just before he died in 2012, Jerry Jaquess and family built four sturdy benches. Over years of heavy use, Jerry’s gifts had accumulated chipped and weather-worn areas and random cigarette burns. So, when Juan Hernandez called asking what his group could do for the Mission, Shelter Director Randy Smith had just the job.

The 12 civic-minded men and women of Alpha Phi Omega joined more than 2500 other volunteers who devoted almost 40,000 hours to improve the Mission in 2015.

Their three-finger salute symbolizes God and country, helping others, and obeying the Scout law.

We are grateful to APO for their help. And Jerry would be pleased too.
