for advanced notice of participation
1.) Help us re-dccorate and make beautiful our dining hall: Creating perhaps a more coffee shop / cafe ambiance with fabrics, curtains, couches, rugs, coffee tables, lamps, chandeliers and more.
2.) Hang (new) String lights in the Dining Hall: The old string lights must come down - old non-LED type, and we will re-hang lots of new sets that are all brand new LED. Some temporary orange or purple halloween lights great too!
3.) Hiking Trail Clean-Up: our hiking trails needs some debris removal, branch clean up, etc.
4.) New firepits and campsites at "The Sandbowl": let's build some new fire pits for camping up at the "sand bowl" and a central fire pit as well. All of the stones needed are within a couple of hundred foot radius of center!
5.) New firepits and campsites at creekside "Fern Valley": let's build some new fire pits for camping over at the "Fern Valley" (past the gym) and clean up the property a bit (cut saplings, debris removal). All of the stones needed for firepits will be brought over.
6.) Start brush and property clean up around the 2 uphill new lot purchases: Lots 1 and 2 -- needs much property clean up. These are the abandoned duplex cabins up on the hill above the pavilion down at the cul-d-sac.
7.) Start interior clean up of new building purchases: on lot's 1 and 2 uphill above the pavilion. Sweeping, junk removal, and removing 3rd rate construction projects to bring it back to original 1950's core structure.
8.) Move the 10 piece stage to the gymnasium: Ten 4x8 foot stage sections may go the gymnasium and we will swap the 6 wooden stage sections from the pavilion to the dining hall for a lower profile look for our musicians playing on the dining hall stage until we can custom build a new low profile stage at the dining hall.
9.) Build a new smaller, leaner stage at the dining hall: after removing the 10 piece stage at the dining hall to the gym, construct a new stage with supplied materials and tools.
10.) Gravel work: We may get 20 tons of gravel delivered... and then moving gravel from large piles to needed pot-holes, sink-hole, at bridge behind beach house on campground side... and other partner designated spots that are mud pits! Can use Wheelbarrows, trailer, truck or UTV with dump bed.
