Labor Day Work Weekend

What: Seventh Annual OTTO Alumni Labor Day Work Weekend
When: Sat. September 5th – Mon. September 7th, 2020
Where: 14 Leroy St., Potsdam, NY
Labor Day Work Weekend Has Been Postponed For Alumni Due To COVID-19
Proceeds for work weekend will still be used in the same FASHION
i.e. a small portion will be given to the actives to spruce up the house for the upcoming semester and the remaining portion will be saved for larger, professional projects around the house such as the bathroom renovation last year.

It’s that time of year again. Summer is upon us, and we are looking for your help with some labor day projects.

In 2019 we crushed our goal of $18k and raised $21,500.

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 6 years, we have raised just over $103K toward the roof replacement, bathroom renovations, and professional restoration of the eaves. The biggest need now is restoration of the large columns in the front of the house.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 $5,000 to cover paint, ladders, aerial lift, wood and other supplies. Along with $13,000 toward the next big project (Professional restoration of the front columns). After the amount we raised last year, I am confident that working together we can get it done.

For those looking mail paper checks, please note the address has changed from years past.
