Rutherford women hit the roof

Ten years ago, a church group in Rutherford County decided to repair a roof for a person who couldn't afford to pay for the work. When the work day arrived, only the women volunteers showed up - their husbands stayed at home. The women climbed on the roof anyway and completed the work. Since then, the female volunteers have roofed 67 homes for disadvantaged people and have become minor celebrities. People magazine recently featured them.
