July 1st- The first day

by Shawn

Today was a full day indeed. Breakfast was shared around 7:30 and bonding was achieved between the members of our group. Afterward, and in a more formal and structured forum, the group collaborated and came up with a common understanding of how a group can function well. We discussed which components are present in well functioning groups, what our objectives are as a group over the course of this project both shared and individual, and the parameters of our group as it relates to the community we will be serving. Although the orientation took many hours, there were hours set aside for a tour of the Reservation. Our guide, Joe, was informative and knowledgeable. For me, the highlight of the trip was stopping in one of the hotels in Glacier, the biggest in the park; the view was spectacular and the hotel itself, historic. Upon conclusion of the tour we returned to our base of operations to share in another delicious meal prepared by Candy. It was chicken with veggies and rolls. Some went to watch a movie after dinner, I read. I am really looking forward to getting to work tomorrow and meeting some of the locals and feel excited and well equipped to be working with the folks that have decided to participate.
