The volunteer centre is now painted and organized. It has a fridge (courtesy of Gloria and Niale) and a microwave.The sign says: no smoking, no cats, no dirty coveralls. It has space for Terry's office. Two computers have been installed, one for Terry's use and one for general museum use. The volunteer centre will be the place where visitors can be hosted and welcomed, our records can be kept, volunteer projects organized, safety meetings held and above all it becomes another social environment.
The lunch room in Calder and the work area has been cleaned up thanks to Brent.
We had several Community Service Volunteer assignments this week. Without them we would not have made the progress that we did. Next week the crew from Alberta Hospital begins their assignment: Monday morning painting. They will painting the trim on St. Albert station and OPAL station.
The paint has been sorted and all the remnants from past projects have been discarded. Dunvegan Shop is being used temporarily as a staging area as things get moved around. As buildings and cars get sorted there are many things that appear and re-appear. We are presently searching for vacuum cleaners!
If anyone has a full size fridge that they want to donate, let me know. Also, if you have any lace curtains that you no longer need or want, please let me know as well.
Thanks to: Terry, Judy, Jim, Don, Dave M., Dave S., Brad, Nathan, Ken, Stephen, Barry C., Barry W., Hans, Betty, Gloria, Niale, Cathy, Rosemarie, Roland, Janet, Ken H., John, Brent, Phil, Tim and the Community Service Crews.
On a sad note: Don Weymouth's sister passed away this week. Our sincere
condolences to you Don.
