"Come on, everybody, don't be afraid of getting your hands dirty," City Council member Marilynn Poe called out Tuesday as she braced part of a wooden frame. In a community gathering reminiscent of old-fashioned barn raisings, about 40 volunteers, benefactors and city dignitaries helped raise the walls of what will be home to five young women and their children. The two-story building is an annex to Precious Life Shelter, an emergency and transitional refuge for mothers and pregnant women.
