Over the week of June 15-19, we partnered with First Reformed Church in Holland to build, primarily, the second tool lending garage. The vision for the two garages, as of now, is that the red one will be the “front of house,” where tools will be checked in and out and most will be stored. The new garage will serve as intake, repair shop, and storage for materials and larger items.
These people worked hard! In addition to being a joyful and willing group, no volunteer injuries were sustained and many, many projects were completed:
- Curtains for both 444 College and 448 College
- Landscaping both houses
- Beautification of neighborhood corners
- Siding both 444 and its new garage
- Interior trim and painting at 444
- Building a garage from the ground up
- Organizing and performing a partial inventory of tools for the new library
- Constructing a deck at the back door of 448
- Putting on a Party in the Park at Rosa Park Green
- Playing pool and eating Petrino’s Pizza at Golden 8 Ball
Many, many thanks to the hands, hearts, minds, and contributions of everyone involved! The new garage is already housing donated cabinets, which will be protected this coming Monday by a donated garage door. We are so grateful for Andy Krino for the cabinets and Compaan Door & Operator Co for the garage door.
