1.) Decorate the Dining Hall for Halloween: If you have any halloween decorations to donate, by all means, please bring them. Le't make this dining hall a creepy work of art!
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 trail (aka Trail of Terror for haunted halloween trek) needs some debris removal, mowing, weed trimming, branch clean up, etc.
4.) New firepits and campsites at "sandbowl": let's build some new fire pits for camping up at the "sand bowl" and a central fire pit as well.
5.) Start brush and property clean up around the 4 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.
6.) 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.
7.) 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.
8.) Move pavilion stage to dining hall: after removing the 10 piece stage at the dining hall to the gym, move the 6 piece stage from pavilion to dining hall.
9.) Build a new low profile stage at the dining hall: need to get supplies in place first
10.) Gravel work: 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.
