Work Day

Hi all,
we are going to have a workbee tomorrow morning, Saturday, October 15th at 10 am at the Fossa Store.
Tim Breen  with  some help from Dave, have been tearing up the 2nd story floor and now we need to clean it up.
Vacuuming between the rafters, bagging up debree and things like that... Not hard work, but just need a bunch of hands.
Can you volunteer a few hours???
We need to get at least the sub floor down so that we can move the desks upstairs before construction starts downstairs.
PLEASE can you help?
Thanks... call me if you can or email.... 924.3067 or just show up anytime after 10 am...
