Facility Cleanup Work Party - March, 2017 Time: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Location: SWRR Center The Cleanup Work Party takes place just before the Open House event to prepare the facilities for visitors. Please join us and help with this effort. There is always a lot of cleaning and straightening to be done before the Open House event. Remember all the chores that were done to close down the center in the fall? Now we have to do them to open in the spring! Weather permitting, outside work will happen along with preparing the inside for a busy 2017 season. We have a few rakes and tools but would appreciate you bringing your own, if possible. Come and reconnect with your fellow rehabbers and have a few fun hours of work on Saturday and Sunday. Hope to see you all there.
