2:45 Update Saturday!

Job Well Done! Thanks to everyone who helped in any way!

Friday night update October 31st from Andrew Flanagan

Hello everyone.... I hope to see you all on Saturday morning about 8am. If you can't make it at 8 then hopefully we'll see you for a few hours later in the day. With the weather forecast we really NEED LOTS OF HELP ON SATURDAY. This roof is in desperate shape. We will strip off the old shingles and remove the 3 leaky crappy bubble dome skylights and frame and plywood over them. We may need to put more plywood on the existing roof as well. Things to bring if you have them -safety glasses, Gloves, hand tools, tool belt & wear grubby clothes and bring a set to change into in case we get wet. I have a 10x 10 tent or two we can set up and maybe get dry underneath. The address is 1222 Bayside Road  in Trenton. It's maybe a 1/2 mile (north or)west of the Goose Cove Road. It's the second trailer in. We'll try and put a sign out. If you have some spare plywood or 2x4 or 2x6 framing or roof materials please bring it with it. There is a fresh porta potty. Please try and park on the right side of road near that unless you have materials then go past the porta potty and get in close. Thanks... any questions call or text 460-4249.

Mainers helping Mainers... It's what makes Maine so great! Here's your chance to help someone in need this weekend in Trenton!

A group of volunteers is going to repair the roof on a home in Trenton. A grandmother lives there with her two small grandsons and if the roof isn't repaired they will have no place to live this winter. All skill levels can be put to work.

PLEASE consider giving some time to help this grandmother and the two boys stay in their home. If you can help, contact Andrew Flanagan  on Facebook. Aside from knowing you have helped someone in need, you will also be rewarded by being fed yummy, home cooked food all day, both days

From Andrew Flanagan

"What's still needed: WE NEED MORE PEOPLE, to help strip the old shingles off the roof. Saturday morning starting at 8am. We'll then repair/improve the broken framing and plywood then lay new shingles on it. We still need a few more rolls of ice
water shield and drip-edge and shingles, even a bundle will help. Feel free to message me to volunteer or Chris White for materials. Thanks."
