The siding crew is doing an amazing job! It looks beautiful. If the weather allows we will begin painting this weekend. Thanks to John Schalo for pressure washing the restroom building. It’s all dry and ready for a fresh coat of paint. We could really use some help installing plumbing fixtures in that building.
I’d love to consult with an architect and a structural engineer about a couple of things. We’d like to scrape some sod away from the sidewalks and from around the tennis courts. After that we’re planning to pack down some crushed gravel to create clean edges. This will make it look a lot better and make maintenance a lot easier. We’ll be needing some deals on gravel.
If you’d like to help out but physical labor isn’t your thing, food is always appreciated as well as financial gifts. All donations are tax deductible and can really be used as the project goes forward! We’ll be working on more fund-raising in the next few weeks. Please let me know if you’d like to help with that end of things.
Thanks for all of the support! It’s looking great!
