Wading Pool roof finally repaired

Tue Nov 01, 9:36 AM

The Wading Pool roof has been leaking for 2 years, but thanks to a generous donation of supplies and a dumpster from Amigos Roofing we were able to re-shingle the roof.  A special thanks goes out to Kim Williams who took time from his busy schedule to be on hand to guide the volunteers and replace the roof.  I would also like to thank Greg Elliot, Tyson Elliot, Austin Elliot, Alan MacLeod Jr., Burton, Connor, Orrin, and Felicia Matthews who helped under Kim's guidance.

Now that the Roof has been replaced we hope to move on to the playground.  The Hall and Grounds Committee is still looking for someone to look after the playground and coordinate repairs.  If you are interested please contact Bernadette 758-3395.
