The new playground equipment is really cool, and it’s being installed at B.F. Day during the weekend of September 14 & 15. You can help, and be a part of history (“Yeah, I remember way back in ’13 building that thing…”). Mark your calendars, and please lend a hand.
We need volunteers on both weekend days, to place parts, tighten screws, pour concrete and other fun things. Here’s the schedule:
Saturday, Sept. 14, 9am – 5pm (end time depends on # of volunteers)
Please be there at 9:00 am for an orientation to include a safety talk, overview of the layout, and parts identification. We will then break into groups to build the thing. Afternoon activities will include concrete mixing, finish work and clean up. Work will be supervised by PlayCreations. If you cannot be there all day on Saturday, consider signing up for one of two shifts: 9am – 1pm or 1 – 4pm
Sunday, Sept. 15, 10am – ?? (end time depends on number of volunteers)
Less exciting, but equally important is the placement of drain rock. This will involves lot of muscles, shovels and a handful of wheelbarrows. This work will be so much faster and easier if we can get a lot of people to help.
Lunch, snacks and water will be provided both days. (Thank you Fremont PCC, Ballard Trader Joe’s, & Eltana Bagel). Please bring a refillable water bottle, and work gloves – we will have some gloves, but consider bringing a pair if you have them. All other tools will be provided.
Please contact Kristin Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. Please specify the day and time you will be there. Ideally, we will have 25-30 volunteers on each day. You must be 16 years or older to participate.
