Operation Paint Brush set to go on Eastside!

And all for free to a dozen or more lucky homeowners…compliments of NeighborWorks in collaboration with other groups, corporations and non-profits.  There will food and music when the block(s) are closed and then a grand block party afterward.

Cyndi (team captain) and 10 others took some tools and ladders to 1003 E 8th St. (our project house) to do some prep work on Sept. 18th.  The trimmed, cleaned and scrapped old wood getting ready for the big day.
