The team finished with the Vinton community pool in time for its Memorial weekend opening. After this we moved to working at the Hummel shelter. The Hummel shelter was named after a veteran in Iowa that had passed away in the 60s. The Hummel shelter has different kinds of stuff going on there; people are able to rent it out for different events like weddings, parties, or school activities. There is a fake snake in the ceiling on the inside of the shelter to keep out birds.

We started on the shelter by pulling out all the tables on the inside near the windows. Before painting it we power-washed it inside and out and scraped paint. The Hummel shelter was all black but we painted it white. While some people were painting the walls on the inside others were pulling out weeds in flower beds around the shelter. Inside the shelter, there were eight picnic tables that we also painted.
After we painted the inside, everyone on the team painted the outside. It looks real nice. There was a birthday party there this past weekend. The people really liked the way the Hummel shelter looks.
