The cadre of workers included families with young children to retirees. Within two hours this group of over eighty people finished painting the cinderblock wall which surrounds the retention center just east of power road on Jensen. In addition a group of fifteen people made up of both teenagers and adults worked together to clean the yard of a neighboring elderly women. They trimmed bushes, pulled weeds, and raked rock, leaving the yard looking immaculate.
