A BBRC work party of 12 Clubmembers and 7 Sammamish High Honor Students swarmed over the second of a series of Community Homes of Bellevue with paintbrush and paint sprayer and completed the job in record time!

A new facility is presently in the works to house men with Downs Syndrome. A couple of years ago, the BBRC painted the first group home and John recognized the Club’s willingess to help his organization.
