Strapping Update!

IMG_1844The straps are drilled, most of the old straps have been removed, the frames have been washed…what next?

Grommets! We have 3,000 grommets that need to be inserted into the drilled holes and crimped closed with grommet pliers. And we’re sure you want to help!

Join us on Thursday, May 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Clubhouse for a Grommet Party! Bring a beverage that you like, and we’ll provide some snacks.  Let’s crimp the night away!

And REALLY mark your calendar for Saturday, May 10 for the big Assembly Party. The fun begins at 9:00 a.m. and continues until we’re done! We need a minimum of 24 helpers who will be putting the straps on 90 chairs. This will be a NO CHILDREN ALLOWED event – the straps need to be heated to 200 degrees before they can be stretched across the chair frame.  Three members are bringing up turkey cookers (we need 1 more, by the way!) which will be filled with water and heated to temperature.

A cookout and plenty of beer will be provided for the workers!  Don’t miss this fun day!
