Corwin Harper worked so hard Monday morning the sole of his work boot began to fall off.
Slap, slap, slap – the loose sole hit the ground as he made his way with yet another wheelbarrow full of tanbark from the back of Crescent Elementary School to the front. His effort was part of a workday to beautify the school by building six raised planting beds and benches for the students, pulling weeds, picking up trash and laying tanbark in existing landscaped areas.
The Kaiser Permanente senior vice president area manager for Napa-Solano gained an audience as a dozen-plus fellow volunteers stopped to watch him, and chuckle, as he made his way towards them. Slap, slap, slap.
