March was clean-up and drapery month for Anza
House. Lead by Karen Caldwell several OCA members participated in
a rod and drape day during the March star party. Russell Sipe, Dave
Hobbs, and John (last name?) were the rod hangers while Sandy (last
name?) and Karen Caldwell prepared and hung the drapes. Anwar (last
name?) and several others did general cleaning. Lea Dawson prepared
an award winning chili dinner for the workers. A boom box provided
oldies and, as they say, a good time was had by all.
Earlier in the month Karen brought Jeff Harvey,
a fellow worker at Quest Environmental where Karen is marketing
director, to sanitize Anza House and make sure we were clear of
any potential hantavirus threat. Thanks to Karen, Jeff, and Quest
Envirornmental for the donation of their time.
Each month Anza House is looking better and better
as our volunteers apply liberal elbow grease to the situation. Thanks
to all who have helped.

||Russell Sipe tries to get the
hang of hanging rods.He seems to like it.
Hobbs (6''7" give or take a foot) splits his time between
hanging rods and fooling unsuspecting people by "accidently"
banging his head into overhangs. Dave is standing on a step
stool. He's tall, but he's not THAT tall.
