Minori’s Post: Day #5

In Uncategorized on March 26, 2013 at 8:40 am

The last day was today, and we mainly helped in Buffalo. We helped to clean up the old high school and meet up with people in the town for lunch. Cleaning up the old high school is not easy because it was closed for 40 years and they just started using it again. The people cleaning and reconstructing are all volunteers. So, people in the town get together and do it. The building is open sometimes with a gift shop and a dining room. It is so pretty and the things for the gift shop are from donations from people, and the money goes toward the building, cleaning, and reconstruction. I didn’t know that Buffalo was a city of historic preservation commission. They are good at fund-raising. It is not easy to do, but community members get together with ideas, and they are good at. I really liked that people are moving on with their own ideas, and people are so passionate.
