Community Challenge – Show and Tell

I hope everyone had a really great Memorial Day weekend.  I know I did!  It was productive even though I lost all motivation to work my town job on my days off.  Oh well, right?  When I die, I will look back at this weekend and be glad I did what I wanted and not forced myself to actually “work”. 
As you know, Saturday I posed a Community Challenge for all of us to partake in.  (Optionally, of course!)  Since most of us had a long holiday weekend and the weather has turned for the better, I thought this was a perfect time to make a difference in our communities.  It didn’t have to be anything extravagant, even holding the door open for someone makes a difference!  I decided that I was going to pick up trash in my “neighborhood”.  I decided to canvas just the 5 miles of dirt road leading up the mountain.  I was pleasantly surprised and admittedly disappointed that I only found one can, one bottle, and one receipt along the way.  I had grand visions of a contractor bag and several buckets full of trash and recycling but alas, it wasn’t so.  Bravo neighbor’s for being conscious of your littering!

Since my personal challenge was so much easier than anticipated, I decided to give the cute little veteran sitting outside of the grocery store $20.00 to help our local veterans.  In return he gave me a poppy.  I have a family full of military members and nothing touches my heart quite like helping those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. 

Did you participate in this Community Challenge?  I’d love to hear what you did!  Leave a comment with how you made a difference or blog about it and link up so we can check it out!  Thank you for being apart of my community, near and far, and for making a difference in the lives of those all around.
