Last Day in Biloxi
March 15, 2013
Today was out last day on our service project. We had a half day project today so we could spend Thursday afternoon in Biloxi. We spent the morning working with the DNR in building baskets for oyster shells. They are working to build a wall that is 1600ft long to help protect the shore from erosion and to build a reef for oysters. The baskets we built were made from chicken wire. In the afternoon we had a group picture made with the staff from Moore Community House earlier in the week so we took them a framed picture so they could remember the group from Armstrong.
Tomorrow we begin the nine hour trip back to Savannah. This week has been a great week for everyone. We have learned about the issues here and hopefully have made an impact in the lives of the people in the communities that we have worked. This is also the beginning of Armstrong developing an alternative break program and look forward to sending more students out during future breaks to help others.
