Roof Progress & Summer Plans

June 30th, 2008

The Town Shop roof replacement is in process and well underway. A two week delay in the construction startup means we couldn’t reopen on the date we had hoped for. We intend now to reopen the building on Monday, July 7th at 2pm for cleanup. We could sure use some volunteers. ;)

Meanwhile, the summer 2008 schedule has been prepared, loaded with lots of Seva and adventure opportunities.

A Few Highlights

  • Building open every Monday and Tuesday, 5-10pm. (If temperature goes 90° or higher, we will be closed, looking for water based activities instead.)
  • Mondays: Kayaking (Nine Mile Creek), 5:30pm
  • Tuesdays: Volleyball at Gillie Lake, 6:30pm
  • Wednesdays: Seva (Selfless Service) at Samaritan Center, 3pm
