The sound is typical for a Saturday morning, but the situation is anything but a typical day in the yard.
"I'm the team development chair," said East Side Relay for Life member LuAnne Ross. "I sent out an email to everyone that I possibly could."
It was more a call for help--an effort to take care of a care giver. A woman whose husband is sick with cancer and has left her time for more important things.
"I drive by here everyday," said Ross. "And I know she has neglected so much cause twenty four seven goes towards her husband. It just touches my heart that we'd be able to do something like this."
"She hasn't had the time for her own needs," said Tyndall Firefighter Tim McCutcheon. "So we are out here today to help her clean up her yard."
"We worked a full twenty four so we just came off shift and just came right over," said firefighter James Summers.
"Is it humbling?"
"Yes it is," said Summers.
So as the sun rose and the rain came volunteers found themselves checking off more than just a to do list, but the day's good deed.
"I just want to tell them 'thank you' for helping the individual that they're helping," said McCutcheon. "And we are glad to do our part and help them out."
"It's well deserved and I hope she enjoys it," said Ross.
Debbie Davis may find these events to be funny twist of fate, those she's kept house for are now keeping hers.
"She was actually a cleaning lady for me," said Ross.
"Is it kind of ironic that you knew her because she used to clean your house... and now you are doing the same for her?"
"Exactly...isn't that something?" said Ross.
Several businesses donated towards Relay for Life for the cleanup. Among those was a complimentary massage for Davis.
