Chesapeake Rotary Leads Community in 22nd Annual Paint Your Heart Out

On a recent damp, chilly Saturday, 534 of Chesapeake’s finest citizens donated time, money and much effort to participate in the 22nd annual Paint Your Heart event led by the Rotary Club of Chesapeake. These volunteers painted the exteriors of 15 homes, made repairs, replaced shrubs, raked, mulched and much more. Mike Love, Chairman of this year’s PYHO, described it as an “amazing experience.” He was surprised by how willing people and organizations were to volunteer to serve fellow citizens who needed their help. He admitted, “It’s a lot of work but it’s worth it. Many thanks go to all those who volunteered to work so hard – and also to the companies and organizations that donated materials and labor to support this amazing community event.”

Thanks to Kaye Slinger Albin and Sheli Porter for providing so many great pictures to The Citizen.
