February 20, 2014 Here’s what our HYG has been up to the past four days! Says their fearless leader Becca Lockwood: We arrived in Neon, KY to a foot of snow.

When they arrived in Neon on Saturday, the Hancock group received an orientation and safety training from one of the worksite foremen, Harrison. ...
