I did not do any black Friday shopping. It's getting to be a big thing here in Canada too, even though we don't have Thanksgiving at this time. Our merchants were upset about people crossing the border to make lots of great purchases, so they decided to have Black Friday deals too. I spent the day doing volunteer work at Galcom, putting together fixed station radios, that are given out throughout the world so that people can have Christian programing in remote areas. A group of 11 from our church drove to Hamilton. My job was to put hot glues into a plastic base, fit in a solar panel (about 3X4.5 inches) and snap on a plastic cover. We were working on radios for Southern Sudan. Our group along with about 6 regular volunteers assembled 500 radios, which was a record for one day.
What an awesome project, Ina! Very cool
