KW Red Day pumping petunias for Panhandle Special Needs Inc.

Real Estate Agent with Sandpoint Realty AB36782

Each year on May 11th Keller Williams agents take the day off work to renew, energize and donate their time to helping the community.  This year the Sandpoint Keller Willams Realty picked the Sandpoint Idaho Panhandle Special Needs  to help. 

Red Day Sandpoint Idaho

"There are red shirts everywhere" one of the clients exclaimed. She wasn't kidding!

Lisa Holder, Karen Rodriguez and the rest of us were busy weeding, raking, pulling branches, sweeping, hauling, shoveling. Our fearless leader Bud Bolan brought in and shovelled a truckload of bark. Kris Kingsland could be found swinging in the trees pruning them to prefection. Tony Villelli and Yvette Rainey was entrusted to put together the picnic tables with the added challenge of no instructions. No extra parts were found after assembly, good job guys!   Yours truely, Rain Silverhawk was busy "waking the plant beds" and planting petunias in hanging baskets for the Mothers Day sale. These baskets are BIG be sure to come get one.  Toby Atencio played "Mr. Fix it" with the equipment and then stayed long after to finish weedwhacking while his son chipped all the branches.  Thanks guys I was beat!
