Aric Donerkiel Eagle Project - I need your help.

Posted by kbell on Dec 19 2015 - 9:21am

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for taking so long to get this up. First off I would like to thank everyone who has helped with my project already, I would not have gotten my project this far without all the support.

This time around my project is focused on the assembly of the benches. This will be a two day process (Dec 26th and 27th).

On the first day we will be constructing the benches at my house (96 Lily Lane, Colchester VT 05446). I will supply some snacks and drinks for this day. 

The second day I will be installing the benches on the cement pads that are at the park (Airport Park). I will need some help transporting the benches to the park and help lifting them. We will being using power tools for assembly so I will need some adults to help out as well.  

Please sign up using the link to the right.

Thank you,
Aric Donerkiel
