There will be an El Dorado County Community Day of Service on Saturday, April 26. The day will be filled with projects to improve El Dorado County. Sue Taylor is heading up the day of work and she invites community members to participate.

 

Projects

Clean up of ½ acre vacant lot at 2695 La Crescenta Drive in Cameron Park that belongs to Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers will remove piles of garbage and debris, weed eat, grade and smooth the lot. The purpose is to make the property more marketable for Habitat to sell the property so the organization can use the proceeds to help others.

Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park on Highway 49 in Coloma clean up, painting, wood splitting and stacking cords of wood and minor repairs.

Clean up weeds and brush and minor repairs like fixing the floor in the office area to back room, changing out lights, installing a guard rail and installing new rain gutters around the Camino/Pollock Pines Community Center on Sanders Drive in Pollock Pines. Volunteers will build a gate and wooden garden beds, clean up, weed and spread the pile of chips at the community garden site joined by the Dogwood Club.

At the Placerville Preschoolers School, people will do yard cleanup, outdoor maintenance, repair and painting.

Green Valley Elementary School, 2380 Bass Lake Road in Rescue, will have minor work and clean up done. The greenbelt by the school will also get a clean up.

Weeding, pruning the yard and fixing the sandbox and installing new sand is taking place at Sutter’s Mill School. Volunteers are painting the 30 foot by 30 foot portable building, jungle gym and cinder block wall, and weeding, clearing debris and spreading wood chips around the campus at Gold Trail School.

More people will clean up a horse ranch to be used by the 4H club. The work will include chainsawing, wood splitting, firewood stacking, old fence takedown and hauling away, weedeating, deck repainting, wood fence painting, trash dump run and more working with the 4H club members.

Another group will paint the ceiling of Independent Order of Odd-Fellows Hall and cleanup of 2 miles of a community trail in Placerville.

To learn more about the projects and to volunteer contact Sue Taylor at sue-taylor@comcast.net.
