I find this so inspirational I just need to play it again every couple of months. In my last post I showed chess/checker boards that were made from trash diverted from the landfill.
I am wondering how many people in the San Jacinto Valley would love to see our parks and outdoor seating areas of restaurants filled with musicians and board game players.
Would you like to see that in our town? Imagine how you would feel. Imagine feeling a sense of community. Imagine getting to know your fellow townspeople. I smile every time I think of this idea because IT IS POSSIBLE. It really is. Look what these resourceful people did:
