A Call to Action for Volunteers-Jessie Mays Needs a Fresh Coat of Paint!

Announcement from Will Worthey, North Plains Library Director:

Dear friends and community members,

I am putting out the call to find many, many volunteers to assist with a community effort that will make a real difference in the cultural life of our town. Recently the Library installed a new sound and projection system in the Jessie Mays Community Hall, and just before this, our hard working public works department had the siding and the doors upgraded.

Now we want to finish the job and we want your help

We want to get a fresh coat of paint on the walls of our much loved community hall. Honorable Mayor Lenahan and some other selectors have chosen an excellent color scheme. The Library department will find the funds for the paint and we need many citizens with just a little painting experience to get the hall looking its best.

Please email me at willw@wccls.org, if you are available on some Fridays or Saturdays to help paint. My goal is to have the task completed in just two sessions and for that I need many volunteers.

When you contact me please provide me with the following details:

  • Your painting experience.
  • Tell me if you have any of these items:
  • A six foot ladder (and the means to get it to the building).
  • A ten foot ladder (and the means to get it to the building).
  • A painter’s pole.
  • A roller frame.
  • A drop cloth of at least 10 feet in length.

Once we have enough volunteers in the pool I will send out a poll to come up with the best times and dates to undertake this task.

Not a painter and still want to help?

Yes you can! Just pass this message along to other friends, family and associates that may be able to help.
