As we had done last year, we were there for the ‘Spring Cleanup‘ this year too — except this time it was just Teischan (13) & I. Given our ‘success’ cleaning the trolleys last year we volunteered to do that again this year. And again another change. Last year they had two trolleys out. This year just one. The other two were being fixed. Plus, they needed to use the trolley latre that morning to ferry some new employees up the Castle for orientation. So, we only had an hour — maybe an hour and a half at best. We did our best. They wanted us to concentrate on the inside.
Amazing how dirty it gets. I spent a fair amount of time on the brass. Got some of it gleaming.
Beautiful day! The sun was out, in glory, and it was borderline hot. Great day to work outside. Having lunch on the terrace was even better. It was a privilege.
We had fun. Great people and a worthy cause — and you can’t beat the setting.
They have a new — very nice and knowledgeable ‘Director of Buildings & Grounds — Al Sochard. He was very kind and helpful.
A good day was had by all — methinks.
Judging by those that stayed for lunch we didn’t have as many people as last year. But hard to tell. Some left before lunch.
Weather permitting we will be there for the October Clean Up too.
