It seems that every year Cabin Work Week gets better and better. 2021 was no exception. It was our most successful to date. Not only did we completely stabilize the Weyanock cabin group (our primary site), but significant progress was made in the Paspahegh cabin group, too. And we installed a new roof on a Chickahominy cabin (identified as having a leak late in the project last year).
We both achieved a milestone this year that was acknowledged at the park’s Volunteer Appreciation Picnic midway through the project. We have each volunteered for 1000 hours (not counting our hosting duties). That earned us a spot on a plaque, which is nice. More importantly, it causes us to reflect on the accomplishments within those 1000 hours, the connections we’ve made in the park, and the ability to do something that will benefit others that come to the park after us
