November 8th: Fun Volunteer Opportunity
On Friday, Nov 8th, at 9 AM please join us for a Panel Painting Party. Let’s beautify those badly aging acoustic panels in the fellowship hall. John will take them down ahead of time, and he could use a helper who doesn’t mind being on tall ladders. We’ll vacuum the panels, roll on the paint and leave them to dry and then John and helper will put them back up. Wear grubby clothes and bring with you whatever painting supplies you own, i.e. a face mask, vacuum with brush attachment, drop cloths, rollers and roller pans. We’ll provide lunch. Come for part of the day or all. The more hands, the quicker it will go. RSVP with Bonnie, email@example.com
