上個月連續下了幾天雨，以致於停車場東邊的草埔地變得鬆軟，因此也造成土壤流失，有點高低起伏而變得不太平穩。上星期基金會理事會，我們有提議向外面買一些沙土來先把高低不平的地方填好， 預先估計第一次就order 10 cubic yards 的土壤來做初步改善，適時再做進一步處理。 星期四 (3/22) Texas Garden Materials 運來 10 cubic yards 的土砂先做些暫時性的處置了。土已經來到，但要一些人來一起做會比較快完成，也因此臨時通知同鄉會何世杰會長是否能夠來幫忙把那些沙土堆弄平， 他豪不猶疑的一口就答應説: 星期六(3/24) 晨 9:00 am 會帶一些工具和幾個人來支援，實在感心。我 9:20 am 到達現場時，何會長已經帶領著十幾人在那邊搬土耙土， 大家默默的做，無言的付出。我心中感到無比的溫暖，讓我也感到有意義的事，總會有人在旁支持你、配合你。再度感謝這一群好友們的熱烈支援，有你們真好!!
