From the Facilities Committee
Post-Pandemic Work Party!
Come to our first Post-Pandemic Work Party to prepare our sacred space for the return to in-person gathering! There is much to do: Cleaning, sanitizing, gardening, inventory work, moving chairs in the Sanctuary, hauling stuff and junk! "Excess baggage" - free stuff to take away with you!

Bring your own rags and bucket, squeegees, etc. We will provide cleaning agents and other supplies. For outdoor work bring loppers, clippers, shovels - we need to move the compost pile and cut back some vines and other overgrowth.

  • Does anyone own a carpet cleaner?
  • Bring your truck to make dump runs

Questions or suggestions? Can't make it but could at another time? 
Please contact Sally Barney sbarney07@aol.com, and/or Elise Bender EJMB@cox.net

**Safety measures**
We will wear masks while indoors, limit numbers of people per room,
and have a sign-in system in case of the need for contact tracing.
