Volunteers Needed for Eastern Little League
What? Roof the Como Shed and Majors Dugouts
Where? Como Fields (Glen Avon)
When? May 26, 2018 – work starts at 7:00 AM
Project description: Remove/replace the shingles and fascia on the Como storage shed and Majors dugout roofs (all are low pitch single story buildings). Paul Johnson, who is a long time Eastern volunteer and League supporter, is leading the effort and will have all the necessary material ordered and delivered but is in need of volunteers and some basic construction equipment. He is looking to have at least three competent adults capable of simple roofing/carpentry work and kids and other volunteers for picking up debris and other basic help.
He is also in need the following equipment:
One large dumpster; can someone please make arrangements for a dumpster to be delivered as close as possible to the shed (to minimize throwing distance)? I prefer a large, low-sided unit that makes it easy to toss stuff in from over the side at ground level. Whatever room is left after the shingle project will get filled with junk from the shed and trash from the surrounding area.
At least two shingle removal tools (basically a shovel with teeth); if you’ve got one in your garage, we want to use it. I don’t want to buy this stuff.
One air compressor large enough to drive two nail guns and enough hose to keep two nail guns running
One roofing nail gun and sufficient nails to be productive for the duration of the project (I have access to one gun and will get nails for it but have no compressor or air hose)
Several wheel barrows for hauling debris to the dumpster
Several old tarps to help contain debris during removal
I intend to start this project at 0700 on Saturday May 26 and will need help with shingle and fascia removal first, followed by more skilled labor. Rain day is Sunday, but I intend to start removal in anything short of a biblical downpour since this is the ONLY weekend this summer I can do this work.
Food and beverages provided throughout the day for all volunteers. We realize this is a holiday weekend but we are counting on your help and/or equipment to get this accomplished!
Please contact Paul Johnson at email@example.com to let him know what you can help with.
