RECENT VOLUNTEER PROJECT
And Down It Came!
Thank you to the volunteers who helped us last Saturday take down our old fence and spruce up the yard, in spite of a gloomy day! We are really excited that our new fence will be installed soon. We still have a few panels of the old fence available for anyone who wants a unique souvenir or a good source of some aged wood for just $30! A special "Thank You!" to Elinor Nakis, our Buildings & Ground Committee Chair, for making this whole project possible! A few other work-day notes of appreciation:
- Christianson's Nursery for the discount on some seasonal color
- Discount Fences for their donation of the labor to install our new fence!
- Skagit County Work Crew for "muscle" and hauling away our debris!
