Lots of updates to BUUF's buildings and grounds are being accomplished! Above you'll see the new sign and landscaping improvements.
Other items of note include the new curb, gutters and downspout extensions. In place of the overgrown bushes and dilapidated sign, there is now a mulched bed, pitched at the proper angle to drain water away from the building (awaiting new landscaping in the spring), and our brand new BUUF sign.
This is the result of a year’s worth of work by the Buildings and Grounds committee and many other BUUF volunteers. Each person who has donated their time and energy to accomplishing this transformation has acted from a place of sincere commitment to BUUF’s continued existence in the High Country. No one of us could have taken us this far alone – in working together we’ll bring BUUF to a point that visually reflects who we are - a caring, committed community. More to come soon!
The Buildings and Grounds Committee has finished cleaning up the basement in the Founders House after two years of hard work.
The Boone UU Fellowship's Board of Trustees asks that we show our collective appreciation to the B&G committee by helping to maintain the basement's currently CLEAN condition. That means not placing personal property nor donated items in the basement. Anything found in the basement will be removed. Thank you for your understanding and support!
Date: Saturday 10/9/21 9am to noon
Rain date: Saturday 10/16/21 9am to noon
We’re expecting great cool fall weather and near peak color for our work day on Saturday, October 9th, so come and join us for one of the only group, social-distancing-approved activities available to us for who knows how long... We’ll be finishing the grading of the area near the flag pole, laying down mulch, removing or trimming bushes that have grown too close to the buildings, pulling weeds, painting the outside trim under the “new” windows upstairs in Founders House and much more. We can use all the volunteers who show up, so come and join us! For more information contact Dottie Baker at email@example.com or call 704-293-3672.
Help care for BUUF’s Buildings and Grounds
It looks like the weather will be with us this coming Saturday for the Spring Work Day at BUUF! Unless Ray is wrong, and it’s pouring rain, we’ll meet at 9am in the BUUF parking lot, and continue until about noon. Rain date is May 23rd.
Our top priority is to put down black plastic over the area where the pine trees stood, but there will be several other things you can do – from digging, to lightweight weeding to washing windows. Work boots and gloves recommended, garden tools requested. Does anyone have a wheelbarrow they could bring? Come and spend a day outdoors and reconnect with folks at BUUF! If you have any questions please contact Dottie Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-293-3672.
We're having a mid-winter, clean-out-the-basement workday, and BUUF needs your help! It will be on Saturday, February 15th (snow day is Feb. 29th), starting at 10am and going until we have the basement clear of stuff. We need people who are willing to be in the basement (Sacred Spaces/Buildings&Grounds will provide safety gear), but we also need people who'll never go in the basement. Everyone will receive info on how to be safe on this job. To volunteer or to ask questions, contact Dottie Baker at email@example.com or call 704-293-3672.
