When: Sat. September 4th – Mon. September 6th, 2021

It’s that time of year again. Summer is upon us and we are looking for your help with some labor day projects. The Labor Day Fund Drive starts July 5.
In 2020 we crushed our goal of 18K and raised $22,000.
Take a look at some of the blog posts from years past to see all the great work completed, and all the fun we had along the way.
Labor Day 2020 – 7th Annual Alumni Labor Day Work Weekend
Labor Day 2019 – Work Weekend 2019
Labor Day 2018 – One Upping Ourselves Again!
Labor Day 2017 – Another Record Breaking Year
Labor Day 2016 – Another Rousing Success
In the past 7 years, we have raised over $120,000 toward the roof replacement, bathroom/kitchen renovations, and professional restoration of the eaves.
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, and other supplies. Along with an additional $25,000 to cover next big project and to cover overhead (utilities, taxes, insurance) for the 2021-2022 school year. Total goal is 28K.
For those looking mail paper checks, please note the address has changed from years past.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Alumni E-Board with any comments, questions, or concerns.
