400 Tons

It took 3 tractor trailer trucks just to bring the counter-weights for this giant 400 ton crane to set up across the street from our house. Then the giant transformers will arrive and be lifted onto the concrete pad of the new hydro sub station. After that they will build the walls and roof around it.

Operation Christmas Child

Each year, I volunteer in Kitchener, for a charitable organization that sends gift boxes the size of shoe boxes to children all over the world. I have heard from adults who as children received these boxes at a time when they would normally just get one orange for Christmas.  Our shift today, sorted and packed over 4,000 of the boxes.
