Garage Roofing on Friday, April 20

April 18, 2018 – Volunteers met at the club yesterday and tore off the old roof. They replaced the skylights and started roofing the garage. The work was about half done Tuesday afternoon. The remainder of the work will be completed on Friday, April 20, weather-permitting. All members are asked to join the crew to help complete this important task! We have all the tools we need, just wear your dirty clothes and work gloves and bring your enthusiasm.
