It takes a Village

Our Village is a beautiful mosaic

Our Village is a beautiful mosaic

 

The Village of Paint Lick is made up of all kinds of diverse and talented folks. And the Friends of Paint Lick reflects this diverse contribution in just about everything that gets done around here. It is like the mosaic of an artist that depends on each individual contribution to the design that is literally taking shape before his eyes. Piece by piece it goes together to form a work of art and beauty.

A lot of diverse pieces come together in the work that makes our village of Paint Lick what it is becoming and that certainly includes the precious pieces that have now moved on to the heavenly village. Likewise a number of folks-all volunteers, are working together to contribute to a dream, a pattern, or design, that makes Friends of Paint Link, Inc., what it is today. Most of these “pieces” and their contribution go all but unnamed and that’s just the way they like it. But on this topic, one of the things we desire to do is mention as many as we can in addition to the members of the Board of Directors, that hold us accountable to our charitable charter, and those that regularly staff the weekly routine at the building. 

For starters why not mention a man that has helped behind the scenes in a number of ways and is always there when you need him. Bob Baker, who lives in the area (40461 zip), took on several projects when we were remodeling our building including building the book shelves in the library (a future post). Bob also helps us with the computers from time to time. He is one of those diverse individual pieces that has contributed to the whole and we are very grateful. Even now he is plugging the new blog over on his Landscaping business– B&B Landscape and Designs.

There are many others like Bob, and without seeming to “plug” any local businesses, we hope it won’t be out of line to mention them by name on this blog. If you will go to the link at B&B, you’ll see Friends listed under “Favorite links” as well as some of our Paint Lick neighbors. And if you think your piece is not needed and wanted in making our Village strong and vibrant for the new millenium, think again. The rest of us need you and your contribution.

    I’m so glad to see that the dreams Dean had for this little community have not been forgotten. She touched so many people and cared for each and every one of them equaly. It gives me a good feeling knowing that her legacy will gone on through all who knew her. Of course she had alot to work with here because of the quality of the people that God sent her way; and, when you walk into the friends building you find the same careing and loveing hearts you could expect when she was there. We all have alot to be thankful for just having known her, and the memmory she left behind.
    The body may be gone but the spirit will live on in our little vllage.
