May 2019: Warmer weather is beginning of outdoor work

With the arrival of Spring and the Easter season the Property Team has begun to increase its emphasis on outdoor tasks. The winter equipment has been put away. The warmer weather has allowed us to complete repairs and painting of damaged doors on our outside trash bins, and to install improved door latches. We are evaluating additional improvements to make the trash bins easier and safer to use.

The lawn mowing equipment has been taken out of storage and put back in service. The first lawn mowing of the season was completed just after Easter Sunday. Soon the tent will be going up, a sure harbinger of summer!

As always, our indoor work has continued as needed, and we always have a list of indoor projects on our "to-do" list. The Easter cross has been put back in storage, and the Easter lilies have been removed. With the seasonal change more of our resources will be devoted to the lawn, bushes, plantings, and other details of our grounds.

A special thank you goes out to Barry Philbrick who served as interim Property Team Leader during my winter absence. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to check out the Property Team blog entries from January to the present to learn about team activities through this past winter period.

Dave Mercer, Property Team Leader
