Labor Day 2016 – Another Rousing Success

Year after year we the brothers of OPiO continue to amaze me with their generosity, determination and hard work. 2016 was no different. We set a substantial goal, and everyone rose to the challenge.

  • 3 months of campaigning
  • A googleplex of emails sent by TZ
  • 25 breakfast sandwiches
  • 6 cubic yards of mulch
  • 23 shrubs
  • 6 alumni volunteers
  • 2 girlfriend volunteers
  • 99 Donors
  • $18,525 raised

While all of those numbers are impressive, that last number is simply astounding.

This year’s work continued the focus of restoring the exterior beauty of our beloved 14 Leroy St.

A crew was set to task repairing and painting the eaves, windows, and other various around the house.

While others tackled the landscaping.

Finally, a last group set about repairing a section of front porch that had fallen victim to the elements.

Some seldom seen neighbors dropped by to see what was going on.

Something even more scarcely seen at OPiO stopped by to lend a hand,

while the guys took part in some good old fashion government work.

The crew manged to stay on budget for the weekend, keep all the work to $3,000. The results speak for themselves.
Awesome job guys!

Sticking to the $3,000 budget allowed us to bank just over $15,000 toward the roof replacement. Putting us well on our way to having that project completely funded. If you would like to know more about the roof replacement plans, please take a moment to read through them at the bottom of the Labor Day page.

With Labor Day 2016 behind us, we set our sites toward the coming school year, a great pledge class, continued roof replacement work, and of course Labor Day 2017.

We thank you all immensely, and know we could not do this without your support.
Thank you to all the donors, all the volunteers, and all the families that put up with our shenanigans year after year.

On behalf of; Terry -TZ- Moran, The Alumni Eboard, and the Active Chapter we sincerely appreciate your continued support of the organization.

Thank You

  1. It was a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed hanging out with the actives and feeling their enthusiasm for what we are all doing together. I brushed up on my pool and foosball skills, drank some margaritas on TZs dime (thanks bud!), got to hang with Moriarty again, slept in a tent, and worked my ass off. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. JR
