When: Aug. 26 – Aug. 27, 2017
Where: 14 Leroy St., Potsdam, NY
It’s that time of year again. Summer is upon us, and we are looking for your help with some labor day projects.
2016 was record breaking. We raised over $18,000. Which was used to add some much needed curb appeal to 14 Leroy st., and save $15,000 toward the roof!
Take a look at last years blog post to see all the great work completed, and all the fun we had along the way.
In the past 2 years, we have made a real dent in the roof replacement fundraising. We hope to raise $15,000 this year and next, allowing us to complete that project.
Like previous years, the Alumni E-Board will be working with the actives ahead of time to procure supplies and nail down the task list. We will be working full days on Saturday and Sunday and lunch will be provided.
If you have not had a chance to join us yet, make this year the year. It really is a lot of fun.
What to do if you can attend:
- Add your name to the Who’s Coming list and let us know where you’ll be staying (first come, first served) by completing the Labor Day Work Weekend Registration Form.
- Share this information with your pledge brothers and good friends. Whether you forward an email, or hop on the phone, it all helps. Even if you can’t come, you may be able to help us reach someone who can.
- If you do not want to sleep on a couch or in a tent, make a reservation at the Clarkson Inn (315-265-3050) or the Hampton Inn (315-265-0100) in Potsdam.
What to do if you cannot attend:
We encourage you to donate to this Labor Day weekend fund. We are looking to raise $3,000 to cover paint, ladders, aerial lift, wood and other supplies. We think we can really out do ourselves and raise an additional $15,000 toward replacing the roof. After the amount we raised last year, i am confident that working together we can get it done.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Alumni E-Board with any comments, questions, or concerns.
