IT’S GOOD TO HAVE FRIEND’S  By Tim Clarke

Where would we be without friends is a question often asked by Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities. In times of controversy and turmoil, we have learned we can rely on our friends. Each year they give their time to help others stay warm, safe and dry in their own homes. Without the help of a stalwart group of contractors, trades people and community volunteers we couldn’t go forward.

At this time, we are recruiting contractors who want to be house captains who will lead the trade jobs on the house they are assigned. Their job is to inspect, plan and put together the supplies that will be needed ahead of Rebuilding Day. All must be done akin to a military campaign to finish on time. In addition, we need non-trade coordinators. These individuals operate on another plane. The non-trade coordinators position requires a more velvet glove approach as they direct the community volunteers inside and outside the home and interact more directly with the homeowners. Both these positions require organization and patience with a constant eye on the clock and we respect and admire both greatly.

All this must be overseen by the project manager… the person who pulls it all together before, during and after Rebuilding Day. Our project manager Wayne Palmer has been doing this for more years than most can remember. And it is with a great deal thanks and respect we salute his dedication and loyalty to the community and Rebuilding Together.

In the coming months prior to Rebuilding Day, we will be signing up trade and non-trade volunteers. So begin lining up your groups and sending out those save the date reminders to friends and family, and we will see you on April 29th for the best work you will ever do.

As Mel Brooks is oft quoted “It’s good to be king”. We however think “it’s good to have friend’s”. Year after year we receive so much from so many neighbors, service groups, churches, businesses and our local newspapers. To all we say thank you for making the magic happen each year and restoring our faith.
