Service Opportunity this weekend

As was mentioned last week, there is a Lodge Day of Service scheduled for this Saturday, Dec. 12th. It would be great to have a good showing from Kennesaw Chapter there! This is the last Lodge Day of Service for the year and it’s always a big one. The main activity will be raking & bagging leaves across the entire cemetery (10 or so acres). Please attend if you are able and check the weather the morning of. Generally, the lodge will be out working rain or shine, so come prepared.
These hours are considered community service hours, if being used for school or religious organization, please bring any forms that need to be signed to the event if possible. Additionally, unlike most OA events, family and other non-OA members are welcome at Lodge Days of Service. Feel free to come down as an entire family and help out!
Event: Lodge Day of Service
Date: Saturday, Dec. 12th
Time: 9:30am – 3:30pm
Location: East View Cemetery
(check Google Maps, we generally park and meet at the cemetery entrance on 4th Ave.)
Safety Protocols:

  • This event is outdoors and spread across 10 acres, so social distancing should not be problem for anyone who would like to work in a more segregated area of the cemetery.
  • Despite being outdoors, face covers will be required as there may be times when you are around others (like while stuffing leaves in bags)

What to Bring:

  • Face Covering
  • Work Gloves
  • Rain Gear
  • Leaf & Grass Rakes
  • Leaf Blowers & Fuel (Adults Only)
  • Leaf Bag Chute
  • Ear Protection if using a leaf blower or if you’re sensitive to loud noise
  • Bag Lunch – snacks & a basic lunch are generally provided, but out of an abundance of caution I personally recommend bringing your own sack lunch/snacks

Note: It is recommended that you put your name on any equipment that you bring, saying “Mine is the one with the gray tape on the handle” will NOT be enough to distinguish your tools from others.
Feel free to reply to if you have any additional questions or concerns.
