Work Weekend Photos

© FNCA 2008

Every year since 1994, the Buildings and Grounds Committee and other obliging souls gather at the Assembly during the Memorial Day holiday for Work Weekend: three days of maintenance and upkeep of the facilities. (Not to mention socializing together each evening!) We are very grateful for all of the volunteers at camp. Here's photos of some of them at work and some of the projects they've worked on. Thank you one and all.

One of the first Work Weekend projects this year was replacing the old, dilapidated, and poorly placed kitchen door on the Boston Cabin with a window.

A bunch of junk got removed from the Dorm, too, including an old shower stall that had been up in the rafters for at least a decade. GONE!

 

"Weeding the Whitehead Hall Religious Library"

© Trevor 2022

The Camp Historian and a librarian did what librarians call "weeding books": removing unused and out of date books from the collection. They then did what librarians call "shifting books": moving the rest of the books around to more appropriate places. On the right side, you will now find (top to bottom) the New Century Edition copies of the Writings, the Bibles, the "green 30" copies of the Writings, Pott's Concordance, the Dole Notes, and the Sower Notes. In the middle is everything music, including 2 boxes of brand new Hosanna's (which have spilled over to the right side. And on the left is all the collateral literature.

What's not there anymore are 8 sets of out-dated translations of the Writings, scores of out-dated and/or damaged hymnals, dozens of ancient, falling apart volumes ranging from religious to secular, and more.

Just sittin' here. Nobody's around. Wondering how long I'll be here all by myself. Hope it won't be too long because I've got work to do!

The walls of little tiny Room 10 (the old "hospital room" upstairs above the pantry in the Main Building) were taken down and a long wall was built from there along the edge of the Cook's Quarters (right) to the main stairway up to the Girls Dorm, creating a new hallway (left) that continues the old hallway that used to end by the cooks' bathroom upstairs across the back of the building to the top of the stairway up to the Girls Dorm.
