The Hausman family just finished its annual R&R Foundation work project. This year we put in approximately 300 person-hours of manual labor for the Community Center in Winooski, the only “suburb” of Burlington, Vermont.
The state’s largest newspaper, the Burlington Free Press, covered the project with a full page spread. Naturally, the focus was on Marie, our 96-year-old matriarch, who took active part in the construction of benches and gardens. From the Free Press:
Marie Hausman, 96, of Bradenton, Fla., found herself Tuesday wearing a face mask in the humid air in front of the O’Brien Community Center, sanding a board as part of her contribution toward a new bench for the Malletts Bay Avenue complex. She said she couldn’t imagine a better thing to do.
