Title: 2010 County Fair Build Day
Description: Get ready, get set, Build. The time is fast approaching for our August, 14th Fair project build day at Soddy Lake. We will use this day from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm to brainstorm, form a consensus and construct all the items we will use in our “Helping Grow Tennessee”exhibit at the Hamilton County Fair which will be held on September, 25th & 26th @ Chester Frost Park in Hixson TN.

We will be constructing the following items:

1″x2” Display Sign’s for Each Attraction

2 to 4 Seating Benches

4×8 Cedar Raised Bed Garden

Lattice Entry Gate

Rain Barrel accessories

Compost bin / Worm bin

50 Bird Houses

Bird House hangers

Tri-Fold Information Boards and additional planning items

This letter is also a search for old Barn Wood, Lumber, and similar material to be used to complete our Lattice Entry Gate, Benches, Signs, & Bird Houses, if you have access to this type of material, please let me know.

We will have limited use of electricity and would request everyone to bring Battery operated drills and saws with extra charged batteries marked with your name along with you.

We will grill Burgers and Hot Dogs at Noon, and would request everyone to bring there own cooler with drinks (plenty of Water) and a side dish that can handle a very WARM DAY this can be snacks , dessert or your special dish we all need to try.

This will be a very fun day and all are invited along with a spouse or friend, I do need to have a head count ASAP to order the food!!!
