GMS Facilities Work Day

Club members are occasionally called upon to do a little work to maintain the club's building. It could be pressure washing, cleaning gutters, touching up paint, generally cleaning, etc.

It can be hard work, but members are often rewarded with pizza or a pot-luck lunch and a special auction just for members who help!

Proceeds from work day auctions are added to the club's building funds to help us improve and maintain our wonderful home!

So, when duty calls, please come help! You never know what you will be doing or what you will come home with!

If you have any questions about facility work days, please send email to
If you have any questions regarding work day auctions, please contact Kim Cochran.

Spring Facilities Work Day Message


The Spring Workday on Saturday, 08 April was a great success. Gutters were cleaned, gutter guards installed, windows cleaned, plus the normal cleaning inside and out. The water fountains were removed and the wall where they were hung is well on its way to being moved, making room in the workshop for equipment. Worker bees included Tom Batcha, Tom Bates, David Bruce, Sue and Jay Gorday, Elizabeth Lamb, Wes Mayo, John Mikalonis, George Prince, Lawrence and Shirley Parker, Margaret Rowan, Shelley Stubbs, Mary Rauzi, Diana and Juergen Poppelreuter, new member Tom Tumbri, and Bill Waggener. Pizza lunch and the auction took place at Kim’s. Auction was about 50 items for worker bees only.

Please let me or any Officer know of real or potential problems as you see them. Many eyes really help reveal overlooked corners.

It is always a pleasure working with all of the talented and willing worker bees.

Respectfully submitted,
Bill Waggener
Facilities Chair
