The Community Center


This covered area is next to the restrooms.  

Someone has built a shelf case filled with books and free items that no one has any need for anymore.
This got me to thinking.  I can polish off some of my books while here and leave them behind.
Then I thought some more.  I’ve got stuff to give away.  I’ll do some house cleaning.
Notice the microwave up top.  Not a giveaway item.  Plugged in for use.

A small center table with electricity to do anything you need to do from charging devices, heating water and cooking on your electric stove.  Great for those campers in tents.

Another French/Canadian so we had little to say to each other.

He was percolating the morning coffee for he and the Mrs.
That was his cooktop and coffee maker.

The two of them were living the winter out of their Toyota van.
Better than freezing to death in Quebec.

Trust me ladies, I treat floors in all restrooms and showers as if they we HOT LAVA.
Shoes or flip-flops at all times.

We're so happy for your toe nails! Happy Sunday everywhere! Except where it's Monday already. Great community stuff to swap, and outlets to share. I wonder if people gather there on rainy days.

So homeless then if they were living out of the back of Toyota. At least there was a place you could get books and exchange items. Our campsites do the same

What a terrific place~ Sharing what you no longer want/need is such a simple kindness. Someone has put a lot of thought into making this a nice place. I'd be interested in hearing more about the history of the place from the "mayor".

PS: You know what I would do if I were there? Set up a little vegetable patch where the showers drain. A couple of tomatoes, some zucchini, a pepper plant or two, peas and beans. Let people add seeds. Make a community garden. Not now, of course, but next winter when you're looking for something to keep you busy.

What a nice little community! You can visit or not. And sharing! I love that! Great idea, Debby.

I see a perfect chance for you to learn French, or brush up from highschool days.
