Community Events

Chapter Cleanup April 2014

14 people were present on Saturday 4/26: (9 members, and 5 from Post 218). Phil Fountain was there earlier during the week and cut down the box elder tree in the patio. This should reduce the bugs inside the chapter in the summer and fall.

On Saturday, Dorothy Sack, Ken Sack, Roy Stuart, Roy Davis, Jerry Baker, Jerry Bovitz, Carl Bumpurs, Jim Hantschel, Sean Dwyer, and Explorers Nick Fisher, his girlfriend, , Tony Rodriguez, Ashley Rodriquez, and her friend. Dorothy Sack was in charge of the clean-up. She had a list of items that needed to be done, and as people arrived, they picked what they wanted to do.

A lot was done, but there still are items that need to be done. If you have a spare moment, please go through the list and complete it. Let Ken Sack know when something has been done. After the list of things to be done, you will see what we accomplished last Saturday. It is your chapter. If we don’t get volunteers to clean up the building, we will have to hire someone to do it, and that is money that we do not have.
