Volunteer Work Weekend 2010

This past weekend volunteers and staff came together to "spruce up" the Spruce Knob Mountain Center as part of TMI's annual Work Weekend. Volunteers came from as far away as Georgia to work on projects around the facilities, including cleaning the deck behind the yurts, improving the rooves on Almati, the Waterfront Yurt, and the Garden Yurt, building a stone wall and a planter box at the front gate, installing a new gate, tilling the garden, mending fences, and a wide swath of other odd jobs. All together, over 40 people helped out over the course of the weekend.

Being on the mountain all the time, it's often easy to miss the small improvements that are always being made. But when that many people work together for a single weekend, the progress is alarmingly conspicuous. The facilities and grounds are looking better than ever. Thank you so much to all who pitched in!
