IOSA needs volunteers

Submitted by Island Oil Spill Association.

We’re looking for 10 or so volunteers who are interested in coming to help get the IOSA workshop (in Friday Harbor) looking sharp, organized, and ready for action. This will be from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22 (lunch will be provided). Anyone interested should complete this registration form in advance that will help us to ensure we have the right number of people on hand- and once you’re registered we’ll contact you directly to confirm details and need by the end of this week.

There’s a lot to do, including:

-Yard work: weed whacking, brush cutting, tidying of the grounds

-Vehicle staging: moving and organizing trailers

-General sorting and cleaning: going through boxes, evaluating usefulness of supplies and equipment

-Building shelving

-Organizing tools and workspace, hanging peg board, mounting vise to the workbench

-Finishing assembly of drill press, shop vac, etc.

-Small engine assessment: testing generator, pressure washer, etc.

There’s work for those who are skilled and those who are enthusiastic (and those who are both!). This is a fun opportunity for those who like to organize and build to whip the current chaos into delightfully organized structure. Will require some flexibility, patience, a bit of hard work, and some clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!
