    Hey, any updates on the Light Rail? I’ve been thinking of joining to have fun things with the kids.

    Also, how does the Tifo process work? Do kids ever help out with that?

    No updates on Light Rail. I really had intent to do a ton more with it this year but all the things the main group requires just leaves so little time to focus on Light Rail. It is something I think about regularly but it's tough to figure out 1. How to get things scheduled for children that have all sorts of school and athletics obligations and 2. What they want to do.

    Tifo is open to pretty much anyone that wants to help. We just get together in a gym and paint. There is always someone there to guide the process so you don't need any artistic skill or anything. Just need to have the desire to help and the energy to do it. The rest we teach on the fly. We always provide snacks and water and if we end up working into the night, we order food for everyone. We have had no children attend yet but they are certainly welcome to.
