On June 8th VIP volunteer Ron Dlugosz came well equipped to repair our Lake Mansfield Trash/Recycle containers - we finished up replacing slats on the one by the parking lot just before the thunderstorm. Ron will be back this week to repair the ones I the beach area later this week. With that job done, it will be time to paint picnic tables! Want to lend a hand?
