Today is Hands On Greenville volunteer work day.  In honor of that, Inspector Gadget (one of the best dudes that you will meet) arranged a convergence at Gideon’s House.  21 men answered the call.

Mission: The mission of F3 is to plant, grow, and serve men’s small workout groups for the invigoration of male community leadership.
