Helping Set Up Crippsmas Place!
Traditionally decorations and lights start going up the first weekend after Thanksgiving.
For this year, that gives us 5 weekend days to set up decorations:
▪ Sat & Sun Nov 25 & Nov 26, 2017 10am-12:30pm 2-5pm
▪ Sat & Sun Dec 2 & 3, 2017 10am-12:30pm 2-5pm
▪ Sat Dec 9, 2017 10am-2pm
We also need help taking down decorations afterward:
▪ Fri Jan 5, 2018 10am-12:30pm 2-5pm
▪ Sat Jan 6, 2018 11am-4pm
We welcome volunteers to help with decoration set-up and take-down! Local high school students can earn community service hours to fulfill the graduation requirement.
*** Sorry, you CANNOT earn community service hours required by law enforcement for traffic tickets, etc. ***
Set-up consists of arranging and installing the unique plywood cut-out decorations on the lawns for those neighbors requesting help along Nicolet Avenue and the cul-de-sacs of Asquith Place, Cripps Place, Wellington Place, and Nicolet Court.
We will not have volunteers climb any ladders and working on rooftops; just ground-level work. Tasks involve carrying the wooden decorations, using a mallet to tap in the support stakes, and using a cordless screwdriver to attach the wooden decorations to the metal support stakes.
HOW TO SIGN UP:
Please have interested students and their families contact me so I can add them to the schedule. The student (or parent) should email Kate Amon at firstname.lastname@example.org with the student’s name, high school, preferred work shifts, and a phone number (in case of last minute shift changes or cancellations).
For quick questions you can also call or text Kate on her cell phone 510-821-5579.
In Community, Charity, and Childhood Joy,
