Every other Friday we take a moment to introduce you to someone in our community who serves in one or more of Watershed's many volunteer areas: GreenHouse/Shed StudentsSunday TeamsCatapultBloc Leading, etc. The featured volunteer will then select someone he/she would like to see highlighted next.

This week, meet Will!

WILL RICE

Volunteer Area(s): 

GreenHouse Diggers/Maples

Why did you choose to volunteer in your area(s)? 

My wife volunteers in there and I get to spend time with her while she is volunteering when I volunteer with her.

What has been one of your favorite moments as a volunteer? 

One weekend my wife was out of town, so I was volunteering without her. This one little girl, who I was pretty sure didn't know my name, came up to me when she got dropped off and said "Hello, Mr Will."  She is one of our favorite kids, and to have her know my name was pretty awesome.  then she looked around and asked "Where's Ms Hannah?" I started cracking up and couldn't wait to tell my wife that not only did this kid know who we were but somehow she knew we were together... or something. To this day that kid is one of our favorites and she always seems happy to see us and that makes us always glad we came to volunteer.

If you could use only one word to describe our Watershed community, what would it be? 

Unconventional. 

Describe your perfect day in Charlotte: 

Wake up kind of late. Breakfast on the back porch watching the birds. A bit of yard work or some other project around the house. Head off for some mountain biking or wakeboarding somewhere.  Or orienteering. Back home early afternoon. Nap on the couch or in a hammock. Mojitoes or margaritas in the afternoon watching and waving at cars on our street. Steak and potatoes for dinner.
