HOWL's on-site Ski Patroller

Not that we want to encourage anyone at HOWL to break a femur or go into cardiac arrest, but if you DID, you'd be in good hands with Vanessa. Congratulations to Vanessa for acing her Ski Patrol course!

What, more cleaning?

Habitat for HOWL was so much fun, the HOWL residents just couldn't help ourselves...we took on the freezer. Annie poses with a mystery package of Boca Burgers (best if used by September, 2006): Going, going....Chicken TV this morning featured the flock going wild for these veggie delights.

Laura shows off the results. So clean! So tidy! Ah, what we won't do for entertainment on a dark November evening.

Habitat for HOWL cleans up

The chain saws were buzzing, the sun was shining (Temperatures were in the 60's), and Annie was overheard saying, "I'm happy, it's a good day," as the garbage piled high in the truck.

Annie and Paedra bucked up a bunch of blow-downs.

Glo wields the paint brush. Look at those jammies!

Sarah and her sister Laura carted and stacked the wood. Guess which one is six months pregnant?

Thanks, everyone for a great day and a huge amount of work!

Habitat for HOWL needs you!

Come on up to HOWL for our volunteer work day: Saturday, November 13 from 1:00-4:00. Help paint a bit of trim, buck up a blow down, stack wood, haul out trash, collect firewood...there are all sorts of ways to help. And of course we invite you to relax, visit the sheep & chickens, and take a stroll, too.

HOWL Herstory Archives

Next time you're up at HOWL, browse meeting minutes from 1980, read an issue of Commonwomon from 1979, or check out who signed HOWL's Articles of Incorporation nearly 23 years ago. Thank you Lynn Vera for dropping off a treasure trove of HOWL herstory. And big thanks to all the early HOWLers who worked so hard to make HOWL a reality.
