On Saturday, September 9th, over 70 community members and 35 high school students participated in the 20th Annual Community Cares Day founded by CHIP (Community Housing Improvement Project), including many of our own Stepping Stone Housing volunteers! There were projects all over Lincoln County from building window inserts for the winter months, repairing and building decks, building stairs, replacing skirting, cleaning out gutters, landscaping, and much more.
A team of volunteers built a deck at our 344 Depot Street property. Leader Mal Briggs was assisted by Ken Lydecker, Bruce Bachelder, and two Carpenters Boat Shop apprentices – John Heck from Virginia and Saren Beckstrum from Camden ME. It was a very hot day and a pretty big job as the deck was about 200 square feet. The job was 95% complete at the end of the day and will be completed shortly by the Regulars or other volunteers.
