Work Party

Kinsmen Volunteer Day - Camp Horizon

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 30, 2016 -
7:30am to 6:00pm
Description: 

We are very busy at camp with groups on site both of those weekends, so what would work best is if they came out for the day on Saturday, January 30.  That is the best day for Chad who will be supervising the project.  He would need  6 – 8 guys max, as it is a small space and he would like to work/supervise hands on.  We do have accommodations if they want to come out Friday night – however nothing with a kitchen is available.  The yurts are also available – they have a wood stove and are quite toasty. The Calgary Children’s Choir is on site so your group could have Saturday lunch with them in the main hall.  

 

The scope of the work has not changed – we need people who are able to do framing, dry walling, and installing doors.  Chad does not know if he will get to the electrical stage at this point.  All tools will be supplied – additional work can be performed in Powell (Maintenance) if required.

 

WHEN:                       Weekend of Saturday, January 30 (possible arrival Friday, January 29)

WHERE:                     Easter Seals Camp Horizon – Deer and Wapiti

SITE FORMAN:        Chad Keen – 587-894-0540

# PARTICIPANTS:   6 – 8 Maximum

TOOLS:                      Chad has all tools and materials required.  If participants wish to bring their own, they may do so.

SCOPE OF WORK:   Framing walls, dry walling and installing doors

 

Of course, we ask that all in attendance be very cognizant of the children on site.

This work party the hours are recorded by Kinettes, who report total to D4 Service Director. Our hours count as Kinettes - but I record attendance to assist any member

who misses a meeting. This was by far the largest number of hampers given out ever ! Kinettes were very organized and the week-end ran smoothly. 242 hampers this year guys, thanks to the following members; Don Hewitt, Keith Hart & Brigette, Mark Jennings, Glenn Head, Andrew Sick, Frank Symons, Cowboy, plus a big thanks to Stampede for the Venue & catering for donating lunches both days.! All 4 Kin Clubs had a hand in serving the Community's Greatest Need !! ( 242 families = 955 individuals ) our donation was greatly needed as was Wendell's 1,000 dollar donation, a couple of donors forgot gift cards so Dani ran out and bought grocery cards. It was a rollercoaster of emotions as the week-end progressed with many a hug as well as tears were shed, knowing we had made a difference.
