Up-and-at'm Saturday morning with a 7:30 breakfast, after which the groups will spread out and tackle multiple project options both in the surrounding community and on the Settlement's campus. We will be working thru the day with a box lunch on project site. We will be making our return trip back to Cincinnati on Saturday, late afternoon. Our ETA back here in Cincy at 8:30 to 9 PM.

As we serve as witnesses for God's love for special people, there are tasks for ALL skill levels of our MCC crew. From painting, carpentry or floor covering tasks, please pick your preferred project below and indicate your 1ST, 2ND & 3RD choices in the registration section.

If you feel that you could lead, please that particular project indicate that as well.
