Dennis Tyson is the Habitat for Humanity Capital Region Construction Director took a moment here from working on the home of a Lansing US Military Veteran to talk about what he does for our community; maybe you'd like to do the same?

You don't have to have construction skills to help out - just the desire to help make Lansing a better place to live by taking care of each other when we have the time, resources and willingness. If you have questions about volunteering, please contact Sami Chau at Habitat to learn how you can be a part of the solution.

And here's Ron Fuller and me. I was trying to look legit because I wasn't really doing anything but getting in the way of progress, BUT, if this story inspires any of you to volunteer, than it was worth the disruptions.

For the record, it was challenging for me to not randomly start bossing people around once I put on the construction hat. I fought the impulse.
