From Patrick C.

On Friday, August 1st, I will need at least 4 guys to help dig holes, just keep in mind that many hands make light work, any leader that wants to come is more than welcome. I want to meet at Messiah Lutheran Church (8154 Atlee Road Mechanicsville, VA 23111) around 9 am, I'm predicting we'll be done by 10:30-11:00, depending on the soil. If anyone has a post hole digger, you are encouraged to bring that as well. Then, that Sunday, August 3rd, I want to meet at the church (Messiah Lutheran) around 1 pm. We'll be building benches and setting the posts. If anyone has a drill, they are encouraged to bring it. I'm anticipating we'll be done by 3 or so. And as I've said before, many hands make light work. Also, if you have safety glasses you are encouraged to bring those as well, I will have a limited supply.

Thanks, Patrick C.
