Le Creneau, France

My last workcamp of the year was spent in France, about an hour away from Vichy.  This was a more unique workcamp for me since it was not the intensive labor variety that I had done in the past.  The volunteers were in Chateau des Prireaux helping to celebrate the holiday season with locals and guests from the surrounding area.  We had quite a good time.  Since I took so many pictures I have separated them into more manageable groups.  Please select the group you'd like to view by clicking on the photo or one of the links below..

W: Chateau des Prireaux is to become a community centre where intercultural meetings and various activities are being organized. Vols will be involved in the renovation of the building (mainly masonry work) and the improvement of the surrounding open spaces. They will also work with long term vols, disadvantaged persons hosted on the site, mentally handicapped and elderly people on the celebrations of Xmas and new year's eve. Such a meeting will be the opportunity to act concretely and in solidarity with persons coming from very different backgrounds and ways of living. A: In the castle.
