‘Many Hands Make Light Work’ and when team members got together all went well under the direction of Dick Harris, Chair of Restoration and Beautification and Louise Punnett, Chair of the Volunteer Committee.

Hardly have we completed a very successful painting work party and we are planning another work party for Saturday, Feb.17th at 9am.
Our objective is to start reorganizing our storage rooms in the basement to better utilize the space and remove a buildup of clutter. We will enter everything into three categories…..stuff to save, stuff to put into our Spring Yard Sale, and stuff to take to the landfill.
This work party will involve some lifting, could be somewhat dusty and dirty.
If you are able to make this event, it would be very much appreciated. I would suggest wearing old clothes and bring a pair of gloves.
Once again, the ladies at the Shatford Centre will be supplying us with a wholesome lunch and goodies.
Please let me know if you are able to attend and thank you once again for your continued enthusiasm .
