Rotarian Ralph Lehner Recaps Spring Service Project
Family Services indicated that a recipient of their Meal on Wheels had a problem with a door on the house. After a drive by, the trim paint on the home and a big hole in the garage roof led us to believe we had a bigger project.
The supports and boards on the garage roof had rotted as well as the joists and rafters. As a result we had to replace the top plate (the board on top of the blocks), replace the ends of the joists and rafters, which Jeff did before we arrived on Saturday. The small door supporting wood on the garage was rotted and was replaced. The window was also rotted and was removed.
Cecil, Rob and Jeff cleared the roof of the garage, replace the rotten boards with plywood and the shingled half of the roof. Jackie became an expert as a paint scrapper. Randy, Chris, Lee, Jim, Tony and Frank all worked on the trim paint.
Randy fortunately brought a paint sprayer and as a result we were able to finish the trim paint as well as painting the doors on the garage. Lee and company painted the garage. Mike cleaned around the bottom of the garage, loaded all of the material from the garage and then worked with Jeff to finish the garage roof. Jeff then trimmed large garage doors with 1x4 on the bottom that was rotten, installed new hardware to properly close the doors. They had previously been held closed by a couple of sticks. Dillon prepped the garage for painting as well as making a couple of runs for additional material and lunch. Frank did more painting to clean up the over spray.
A separate run was made by Jeff to replace the sweep on the bottom of the house door. And a door handle was installed on the small garage door.
The first Saturday the following members came out to help: Cecil Albrecht, Randy Baum, Rob Bradley, Chris Byrd, Jackie Crouch, Lee Dreiss, Jim Huckabay, Jeff Keast, Tony Touchon and Frank Valadez.
The second Saturday the following members came out to help? Randy Baum, Lee Dreiss (along with son and daughter), Jeff Keast, Mike Lang, Dillon Snell and Frank Valadez.
The club should be proud of these members for a job WELL DONE!
