We're excited to kick off the work parties for the Nelson House.  In case you've missed it, Poulsbo Rotary, the City of Poulsbo, and Coffee Oasis are once again partnering to help homeless and at risk youth in our community.  Coffee Oasis is assuming the caretaker responsibilities for Nelson Park, and will be occupying the Nelson House as part of those responsibilities.  Five young women in transition and case management with Coffee House will live in the house along with a house manager.  Poulsbo Rotary is helping update the house and plans work parties every other weekend until we're done.
We will start this Saturday with the following tasks:
  • Demo flooring and kitchen cabinets
  • Look at furniture and assign teams to clean/paint (Michele Doyle to lead at North Kitsap Storage)
  • Prep walls and ceiling for painting
  • Trim bushes on sidewalks to provide better access to house
Rotarian Chris Doving will be the overall project manager for the update.  Please let Chris or Michele know if you're willing to lead a team.  Michele will be looking for team leads to take furniture offsite for cleaning/painting.  We'll also need to launder linens we obtained at the Bainbridge auction.
On a final note, we were able to pickup most of what we needed at the Bainbridge Rotary auction.  We are still looking for a white 24' dishwasher and 30" stove.  Although they don't need to be new, they need to work well.  Please let me know if you have a resource for these items.
Rotarians are welcome to signup online or wait for the clipboard at Friday's meeting. Non-Rotarians are welcome to contact the club through the "Contact Us" box at right on our homepage or by clicking the "Send Message" button on our Facebook page at "Poulsbo Rotary" if you'd like to volunteer to help!
