Helpful Hint

  • All wood used from the hack racks at either building must be wanded with the metal detector before before any power tool is used on it. Most of this is donated scrap wood and metal objects are clever and hide where you least expect them.

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • Do not dump any kind of waste, especially saw dust, on the ground outside the building. It all has to go into a dumpster.
