It was so great to have The Lucas family at Roslin from June 18th to June 25th 2016. All the way from Salem , Oregon , USA , The lucas family came to Roslin.  On this trip , Mr Dennis Mathew Lucas came to Roslin accompanied by Mrs Tammy Marie Lucas , daughter Abigail Corrie Lucas , Elisabeth Grace Lucas and Olivia Eve Lucas .  What a solid first class team indeed.

It was such a wonderful visit as they were adding up the needed man power to do so many things of at the orphanage and other Roslin’s venues, including the hardy routines of the day to day things at Roslin , some  land clearing, paving the path at the orphanage and removing rocks.

Thank you very much to The Lucas family , with your participations the rocky soil at Roslin’s home stay has been made into a fantastic plating area and the colour has been changed with so much greenery.

One of the most difficult part is to relocate these rocks

Tilting the soil must be done manually as the tractors will be damaged by the hidden rocks
