Lots of pax out of town and traveling for Spring Break, so good to see Chicago, Evanston, and Oak Park come together at the Green Room. The 4 corner elevator is not easy, and certainly not something YHC would do on his own, however when you have a pax beside you pushing hard to get the work in, and a rabbit or two to chase and push from behind, what once seemed out of reach becomes attainable. Thanks to the men who continue to come out everyday to paint the fence and push the rock with YHC.
