October 2007

On October 5th, the Emmaus Experience VI was attended by more than 40 people.  This year's theme was: "The Parable of the Prodigal Son: Stories of Forgiveness, Healing and Reconciliation."   Presentations and discussions were very well received by the participants.  The documentary: "The Power of Forgiveness" was presented and was a good source for reflection.  The picure shows some of the participants.
    The installation of the new boilers was delayed after more asbestos was discovered under the old boilers.  A special team had to come back and set up their equipment to isolate their work area to dispose of the problematic fibers.  The air is monitored by special filters to assure that no particles escape the quarantined area.  In the last days of October, we were able to feel the heat of the new boilers.  Fortunately, the month of October was milder than previous years.
    The apple crop was not as plentiful as usual.  We harvested 8,854 lbs. of apples and we used most of them to make 412 gallons of cider.  The garden suppiled a large variety of organic vegetibles for the kitchen.
