Here’s the details:
Date: Saturday, April 28
Time: After Convergence (coffee and biscuits will be provided)
Place: From WarZone to 616 Howard St.
Directions: Take 6th St to Marion Avenue. Right on Marion. First house on the right just after Pride Park. (This is the back of the house)
We are going to be replacing 6 windows, 1 exterior door and 3 door locks for Dolly Wright and her husband. She is as sweet as a 50# bag of sugar, and I can't wait to help her out. Their home is old and breezy. New windows will provide better insulation than the plastic she has tacked up over the original windows. Currently her back door is an interior hollow core door, which provides zero security and not much more insulation value. Her front and rear doors have no deadbolts and old handles. Her bathroom door has no handle at all. #awkward
Tools: Hammer, flat bar, screwdrivers, level, pliers, cordless drill, sawzall.
Donkey Lips put us on to another project that is just down the street. There is a 100+ year old cemetery at the end of Marion Avenue that was literally covered up by trees and undergrowth. Volunteers have begun to bring it back to where it should be, but now they need some heavy lifting. F3 is tasked with laying a thick bed of mulch over the entire plot of land to kill off the vegetation. We need strong backs and weak minds.
Tools: Wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, pitchforks, pruning shears, maybe a chainsaw or two.
THE BIG PICTURE
F3's mission is to plant, grow and serve small workout groups to invigorate male community leadership. Service is a major component of leadership. It is one of my burning desires to build bridges. Across race, age, creed, nationality, basically any gulf between "US" and "THEM". Working on these projects gives "us" a huge opportunity to reach "them". How many sad clowns live within a 1000' radius of these two projects? How many lives can we impact by leveraging a little bit of our time to help others?
