Still, summer means tractors and clanging and the roar of the drill. While we sadly won't see a bunch of new homes added to our landscape in the near future, I did hear the banging of tools this morning.
Workmen are digging and hammering around a new youth building of the Ezra youth group. For more than a year, the shell of the building stood abandoned, but now there's plenty of action around its perimeter. I'm excited that the kids of the neighborhood will be able to call a beautiful new building home base, instead of a bunch of old
Then I noticed the sign. Perhaps it's been there for ages, or perhaps it just popped up. It reads something like "The Efrat Municipality together with the Ministry of Building and various donations are building a Youth Clubhouse here on the Dekel Hill. The work will be completed on December 1, 2011, IY"H. Another 250,000 NIS is needed to complete the building. All contributions are welcome: 993-9310."
You are invited to contribute.
As I drove around during the day, I suddenly noticed more of those green and blue work signs.
