Monday: The day of wall-raising

Last night was the big Legacy Build Kickoff Celebration. You can read about that here. And find pictures here.

Volunteers showed up by the hundreds, one group had matching bright green T-shirts made. Others were dressed in their Sunday best.

Highlights from the event included the first public showing of the trailer to the Millard Fuller Movie, a seven-minute film about Millard's legacy, and the announcement of legislation that intends to rename a portion of Highway 29 "The Millard Fuller Memorial Highway."

The MFLB blog will be featuring one or two people each day to give readers a feel for the event. Look for a Q&A from a special volunteer later today. For now, enjoy some pictures from yesterday.

These volunteers from Neimond's Independent Church in Pennsylvania won't get lost in a crowd.

Debbie Tollett received a Habitat Home many years ago. Now she volunteers for the Fuller Center. Here she's standing with Wayne Hall, who served as the House Captain for her house.

Fuller Center Director of Special Programs Ryan Iafigliola gives it right back during the passing of the hard hats. Local girl and boy scouts helped with the offering which collected $4,000.
