Building Connections

by Diane McDonough

Patricia Taylor is a mother, grandmother and a construction worker with a Construction Supervisor's License. She loves to work with wood. She's renovated and winterized her own home; converted a van to a camper; and has empowered families by building homes — and kayaks — for Habitat for Humanity.

Soft-spoken and unassuming, her woodworking skills are impressive, but Pat's strength lies in her relationships to her family and to her community. She uses these talents to make the world a better place.

by Beverly Ryle

Bev Ryle

It was relatively cool on the back deck of my son's laboriously restored, brick house in downtown Wallingford, CT, when the family gathered on the first of August to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday.

The older generations, grandparents and great grandparent, had assembled ahead of the young families and seated themselves in the shade or where they might catch a breeze.

I had settled in with my mother on a picnic table bench along the wall separating the kitchen from the deck. The location provided a good back rest, easy access to the kitchen, should we be called upon to help, and an unobstructed view of the piecemeal arrival of our children or children's children and their broods.

It also proved to be an excellent vantage point to observe a male-bonding ritual I'd never seen before, when my son-in-law joined the group
