This Week- Painting, Moving and More!

Hi all!
Last week was quiet, I hope you enjoyed a rest!
And this week, we have two painting jobs and some moving on the horizon:

This Thursday at 9am, we will be painting Cindy's trailer! We have all the supplies, and just need folks to put a second coat on the body and a new coat on the trim. She is living with many physical ailments and needs our help to keep her home in good shape!

This Friday, we will be scraping one exterior wall (it's peeling) and putting the first coat of paint on Diane's house, then wrapping up with the second coat on Sunday. Diane is a senior who cannot afford to have her home painted, and she wants to stay proud of her lovely house!

And on August 8th, we will be moving Sarah, a lovely woman whose son in law passed away, so she needs to sell her home to help her daughter pay the medical bills from his treatments. We need plenty of hands and feet (and backs!) to help her.

Let's get a lot of hands on deck for these bigger (but fun!) jobs. Call me if you can help - 546-4697.

Also, if you haven't RSVP'd yet, please let me know if you plan to come to the Imagine Missoula Volunteer Orientation this Saturday, July 30th from 10-11:30 am. You will have a chance to meet other volunteers, hear their stories, and also ask lots of questions about Imagine Missoula! We will wrap up with a presentation from an expert in disaster relief. She will go over free courses for disaster preparedness if you would like to develop those skills. Home Health of Montana has offered to host us, and provide coffee and breakfast treats! Aren't they awesome? Please park behind the building at 1903 Russell St (on the corner of North and Russell.)

And finally- guess what?? United Way of Missoula County has offered for us to have our Saturday Market table on the lawn of their building (by the XXXX) all summer! Come and get your Imagine Missoula t-shirts (yes, I will bring some to the Orientation,) All Souls Ale t-shirts, and pre-order the new All Souls Ale from Big Sky Brewery!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
