With the onset of spring, numerous projects for the exterior of the IHSM clubhouse will be underway! The exterior wall facing the parking lot with be sandblasted, repaired and primed; new green shutters and white flower boxes will be mounted outside the front windows; fieldstone will accent the pillars on the front side of the building; and a new awning is being designed and will be installed. The optimistic plan is for all projects to be completed in time for the 5/22 clubhouse dedication!
Our beautiful clubhouse is nice and new and spanking clean….but help is needed immediately to help keep it that way! The IHSM Housekeeping Committee needs more volunteers to join crews to clean on a rotating schedule. Men and women are equally welcome, volunteer solo and you’ll be paired up with another volunteer, or sign on as a duo – best friends, sisters/brothers, you and your spouse – any combination of workers will do!
The building needs to be cleaned twice a week, once on Saturday morning, and once between Monday – Wednesday. A minimum of a two people are needed for each shift/crew, and it takes about two hours to dust, sweep, clean three bathrooms and vacuum. The larger the pool of volunteers, the less often each person would be scheduled! The goal is for each person to not have to clean more than ONCE a month, and to have a few substitutes to cover for illness, vacations, etc. Please help to keep our Clubhouse a place of which we can be proud. Please contact Jenn Hussey at 203-605-7743 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers needed! Terri Flynn and the Bar Management Committee are coordinating the scheduling of greeters to check membership cards and ID’s during the hours the bar room is open. Normal schedule for greeters will be Thursdays, 5 p.m. on; Fridays, 5 p.m. on; Saturdays, 12 p.m. on; and Sunday, 12 p.m. on. The hours for greeters will be divided into shorter, consecutive shifts. Please specify your preference for either an afternoon or evening shift. Signup sheets will be available at the clubhouse on the weekend for volunteering to serve as greeters. The same few members have been helping, so we would be grateful for more volunteers. To volunteer click here or contact Terri Flynn: email@example.com or 203-868-4505.
