Do a sundance for me.  Have begun having a new roof put on my house.  It’s a little late in the year for this, and the roof is complicated.  But it is what I’ve got.  For me, its been a summer of nothing accomplished (the heat!), or so it feels.  Hoping I have some time left before you-know-what.

The Donation Store has enjoyed strong support from our community from the beginning. Our summer residents have been a huge help and as we say farewell, we also say “Thank You” for your time, efforts and positive energy. Donations of goods and cash have kept the Bosun Hall functional and contributed toward upgrades. But our volunteer staff members are weary and overwhelmed; sorting through stuff that no one will purchase and sending truckloads of stuff to Nelson and the landfill is taking a toll. We cannot do it all, so we are putting a limit of 2 bags of clothing or 2 boxes of “stuff” per drop off. Please consider high grading, bring us your best, your cleanest and most wearable clothing. Folks can take large loads of clothing to Positive Apparel at 721 Front St in Nelson; they are able to ship it elsewhere. Meanwhile we continue our toonie ($2) bag sale to make room for fall and winter clothing.  Thank you all for your contributions!
