Rover Memorial Chalet Working Bee October 2013
As wardens of the Rover Memorial Chalet - Warburton, we assisted in the Working Bee held at the chalet over the weekend of 25-27 October 2013.
The timing of the working bee turned out to be perfect, as during the previous week, a massive gum tree had fallen behind the chalet, taking out the fence separating the parade ground and the bunkhouse, as well as crushing through the roof of the tool shed and a section of one room of the bunkhouse.
Both the flagpole and clothesline manged to escape damage by only centimetres and needless to say, the main focus of the working bee changed from the original plan.
The branches of the fallen tree were great to get some more wood in the firewood shed, ready to burn for next winter.
The working bee also saw some a number of small jobs completed in the hall and the bunk rooms, as well as some freshening with some much needed painting.
Thanks to fellowship, committee, and fellowship members, as well as the few Rovers from Leichhardt and Keith Farquar that turned up to give a helping hand.
