Done in a Day

Done in a Day (DIAD)  is a term that refers to one-day or short term projects. They provide a quick response to specific community needs that vary in nature. There are many worthwhile causes and organizations, where just a day of our members time can make a significant impact.

In 2009, the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington also began collecting items at our membership meetings to benefit organizations in the community in need of specific donations This has become a relatively simple way for our League to further our Mission.  These are now known as Done in a Minute, or DIM.

May 2011 - Gardening with Good Shepherd Brennan House residents:
Planting a seed is a symbol of hope. You have to plan to be there to take care of a plant and harvest the results. So, the JLHB Community Impact Team and JLHB New Members looked to the future planning the addition of  a vegetable garden at The Good Shepherd Centre's Brennan House in Hamilton.  On a perfect sunny morning, residents of Brennan House joined in, cheerfully digging and willing to learn about the many aspects of gardening. 

The newly planted garden also included yellow marigolds to deter insects. Early and late tomatoes promised a continual harvest through the summer while an herb garden, including basil, hinted of pasta sauce to come. Green and red leaf lettuce, together with the multicoloured peppers will make delicious salads to reinforce the fact that, as one of the young women residents insisted,  although the potato is a vegetable, it's not the only one. Beans and peas will be lucky if they make it to the table at all as they are so very good eaten raw.

As the day's efforts came to a close, the JLHB was presented with a thank you note and promised of watering and weeding.  It was a proud and productive day for all involved!
