Legacy Build update: Rain takes a break while volunteers work on through the mud

WEST POINT, Georgia — The second day of the Chattahoochee Fuller Center Project’s 2021 Millard Fuller Legacy Build began Tuesday morning with a note from West Point Mayor advising volunteers to avoid certain flooded streets after an estimated 3-5 inches of rain had fallen in the area over the course of 36 hours.

Fortunately, the rain finally stopped just before lunch, but the mud remains. Also, the wet conditions have hindered a few steps in the building of two new houses — such as insulation and drywall. Still, volunteers pressed on with patience, determination and good humor.

While there will be plenty for a follow-up crew of volunteers to address next week, the schedule remains on track for dedications this Friday in West Point. In the meantime, check out some of Tuesday’s action at the build.
