Outdoor Work Party this Saturday, October 17th

  1. Paver Path Installation 10am-3pm

  2. Grounds Clean-Up 1-3pm

We need your help and an RSVP for the following:  Paver installation helpers Saturday morning – We are in need of at least 5 committed volunteers to meet Shannon Ladner (from UofO DesignBridge) at Ridgeline this Saturday, October 17th from 10am-1pm to assist with the paver installation for the path to the outdoor classroom (installation will continue from 1-3pm). The pavers include the buy-a-brick bricks.   If you have a brick, perhaps you would like to help install it for the full experience!

Do you have any of the following items? We need to borrow (or have a volunteer purchase) several items for the paver path installation:

  • Hand saw to cut plastic edging

  • 2x4 or similar sized piece of wood at least 4.5 ft long (to use as a sand screed)

  • Two metal pipes maybe 5 feet or so long (between 1"-1.5" in diameter - diameter is important, length not so much)

REPLY NOW and let Cynthia know how you will help out this Saturday! Thank you!
