Yes, we survived one more NOMADS project. Sore bodies, tired minds, new friends, grateful hearts.
Sunrise over Owasco Lake
Sheryl and Brenda tediously painting of a door to a storage area. Four heavy wooden doors to the common area were also sanded, stained and polyed. They did a beautiful job on those wooden doors. All were impressed.
Mike power washing a bridge. Every deck of at least five buildings (some had more than one deck), every picnic table and every bench throughout the campground were power washed and stained.
Wayne, Brenda and Leonard staining one of two docks that were power washed.
Sheryl carpet cleaning in the dining hall.
And a large dining hall is it. Every one of the 200+ chairs were cleaned.
The camp provided us with lunch each work day. Greatly appreciated.
About that door to the storage area that Sheryl and Brenda worked on. It was donated to the campground. Like a lot of things in North Central New York, the previous metal door was affected by use of road salt on the parking lot. The donated door was primed and painted by Sheryl and Brenda. However, the paint did not adhere to the door. They had to carefully remove it. Then a sanding and suitable base coat applied, more sanding and another coat of the correct paint. The process took days to complete. FINALLY time to hang that problem door...but...nobody measured the door and door opening. The door was a standard 8 foot door. The opening for a taller industrial door. OOPS!
The folks at Camp Casowasco appreciated the work we have accomplished. They gave us a list of tasks and fully did not expect it all to be accomplished. We completed that list plus so much more. Us older folks know how to work.
This picture of Harold says it all.
Until next time.
