Antelope Valley Rotarian Tina Borzage recently participated in her fourth Super Build on December 14, 2019.  Tina supported the Super Build this year in Tijuana, Mexico.  The Super Build provides housing to needy families all over the world but twice a year, they build homes on the East side of Tijuana.  In order for the families to qualify for a home, they have to do community service and help build other homes for other families and when they have contributed a certain numbers of community hours, they go on a waiting list until they get chosen to receive a home. 
Rotarians from several clubs in District 5300 participate in the Super Build.  About 40 people total started work about 9:00 AM on Saturday, December 14, 2019.  The workforce was divided in two groups.  While some worked on framing the sides of the homes and the roofs, others painted all the wall panels.  By 12 noon, the walls were up and the roofs were in place.  Work stopped for lunch at 12. 
After lunch the workforce continued working on all the detailing and painting the outside of the houses and all the trimming.  The roofers installed shingles on the homes and completed installation of the windows and front door.  By 3:30 PM, the two homes were finished. The families received the keys to their new home and many house gifts from the Rotarian workforce. 
Group pictures were taken of the completed projects as the families prepared to move into their new homes.
