The hard work, generosity, and enthusiasm displayed this summer by Pointe au Baril has been spectacular. Thank you to every single Islander, villager, and neighbouring community member that has contributed to this build. It was an incredibly successful summer; the house is unrecognizable from its humble beginnings and nearly dried-in!
As the summer winds down, we are inviting any and all last-minute volunteers from the Islands to join us before you head home. We will be building August 29- September 1, rain or shine, and we are eager to share a build day with friends, new and old.
While we head back to our off-season lives, the villagers and soon-to-be chosen family will pick up the project where we will leave it. They will work together, with our thoughts and well-wishes, as time and weather permits this fall. Who knows what it will look like by Christmas, but we’re excited to find out!
if you would like to volunteer this week, stay updated this fall, or make a donation.
