Fri. Nov. 19th, starting at 10: Outside clean-up day - servants needed

THANK YOU to everyone who came to help at our clean-up day on October 9! We need another round of help as we have a big tree coming down and the "afterwards" raking is what we need help with.

On Friday, November 19, beginning at 10 am, we will be having the tree next to the playground removed. It is expected to take 3-4 hours. We get a $400 discount on the bill if we have 4 or more people there to help with clean-up. We will provide water, chips, and sandwiches for helpers, or we will order lunches. Helpers will mainly carry small branches and logs and do some raking. Please bring a rake and flat shovel if you have one.

This is rescheduled from last month. As you will remember, we lost part of this tree during last year’s derecho and another large branch fell on the playground recently without any wind or rain, so it is a hazard. Since there is no school that day it will be a good time to get this done. 

If you are available on this weekday morning and able to do that type of work, please contact Jeff Rains at jeff.rains@gmail.com or 515-314-8696. In the interest of safety please do not bring children. Thank you.
