These are some pictures of when we started
building. This is in Plaisance. The land is
owned by the St. Michel church. I started
construction in February, 2006. This will be
the managers office and building storage
Started digging the foundation for the
managers office building on 02/27/06
Families were paid to carry

no road leading down to the
Young and old helped carry
down the rocks approximately
250 yards. It took about 8 days
to get the material down to the
site. About 26 truckloads of
sand,gravel and rocks.
Water was carried up from the river
by local women to be used to
make the cement.
