Thanks to everyone who helped with the Great Meadows boardwalk repair project. Dozens of people participated – families, individuals and an Arlington scout pack. Over 100 boards were replaced and the boardwalks are now in much better shape than before. We expect, considering that the age of these boardwalks, that these efforts will be repeated in the future as more treads need replacement.
After fifteen years the boardwalks at Arlington’s Great Meadows need some repairs. It’s basically a matter of replacing some rotting boards on the walkway. The Friends group have assembled materials & tools for the repair close to AGM. However, because of COVID-19 we are not able to plan a typical workday where people just show up.
We are going to try a team/pod approach where people put together a team (2+), and we provide what you need. You schedule a time (can be during the week or on a weekend) and come by to get a set of materials & tools and go to the site and do the work. This both gives flexibility as to time and also avoids groups of strangers. We have written and video instructions, and experienced people will be available by phone to provide guidance. This provides an opportunity to get your family out of the house into fresh air.
We are starting this effort on Saturday September 19. If interested, please contact David White (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lorelle Yee (email@example.com) for more information and to schedule a time.
