Ground Breaking Celebration
To recognize the improvements and accomplishments of Stone Soup since the electrical fire in 2009, Stone Soup had their ground breaking celebration. For those of you who are not familiar with this nonprofit organization you should know that Stone Soup is a community center located in Worcester MA at 4 King Street. This community Center is home to six nonprofit organizations that play a vital role in the Worcester community and throughout Massachusetts.
On Wednesday July 26, 2012 five YouthBuild programs from Massachusetts, AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer, as well as Job Corps teamed together to volunteer community service to the center. Students and volunteers worked on removing fire soot of the walls in the community center, restoring damaged wood pieces, and caulking window insulation.
Project Superintendent, Tim Tudor and Greg Mumford, Deputy Director of YouthBuild Boston took time present background history of the building and tour of the site. The Stone Soup Community Center is a historic house that dates back to 1886. TRA YouthBuild Worcester graduate and worker at Stone Soup, Tyrell Taylor assigned group tasks for the day, showed examples, and explained the impact of this work. Working together to better the community is what we do. Our aim is not to just work on projects. We are here to set examples and to be the difference in our communities.
Later that afternoon numbers began to multiply. Members from the community, public officials, and other organizations came to support the revitalization of the Stone Soup Community Center. Music and appetizers were provided as guests were given time network and get to know this community. Small group tours were given by YouthBuild Worcester graduates. Kicking off this celebration brought joy to the community and excitement for the progress of the center. We are grateful to all that came out and look forward the new Stone Soup Community Center to come.
