WE ARE ACTIVE CAARITES!
Packed bus with food and participants and off we went. Of course, a bathroom stop before we begin work. We met up with the JNF Foresters to explain about the forest and give us our work assignments. In a few weeks, the country will be celebrating Purim and JNF had to get the park ready for the visitors. The parks are OPEN to ALL! Our job today was to shellac the picnic tables and stands for barbecuing – an Israeli favorite , pruning back trees branches, to prevent fires. Some of also picked up litter, but not as much as in past years – big improvement. So not to ‘dirty’ our forest clothes, we were given painting white suits – now that was a laugh watching CAARI put these on over their clothes! By noon we were done. WE impressed the JNF workers with out enthusiasm, energy, talents and responsibility to offer a ‘helping’ hand.
