Annual ‘Day of Service’ offers 3 choices this year

This year’s District 7190 “Day of Service” will offer Rotarians the opportunity to choose from among three different projects on Saturday, May 18.

• In Glenville, at the Animal Protective Foundation break room, we can paint and install new kitchen cabinets. The room is small, so we only need about three volunteers on this project.

• In Scotia, the Route 50 railroad bridge needs painting or applying graffiti-proof decals, depending on progress of the project. Volunteers will be working on a 15-foot-high platform lift, so be ready for that. We need about six to eight volunteers.

• In Saratoga Springs, the facilities that support the Back Stretch Community need our service. They provide housing for and support to Saratoga Race Course workers and their families during the racing season. We will provide a yard cleanup requiring 30 or more volunteers, plus painting projects on various buildings inside and outside for five to volunteers. There also is chainsaw work if you have your own chainsaw, plus demo work and wall re-construction for about six to 10 volunteers.

As always, you can come when you can and leave when you must, but the work programs start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. A simple lunch will be served at all locations.
