September 13, 2020 - Elderly Bartlett Man

Sunday Samaritans,

Sunday March 8 was the last time we did a project. During the onset of COVID-19, I spent about 5 or 6 days working on our trailer. I organized things better than they have ever been. I've repainted the metal and there are new tool racks and other items. I've upgraded our ladders and bought other tools and took off the trailer things we never used. I did this so we would be all ready to come back when reopening started. I don't think I realized then how long this would drag out.

We have all had to learn how to go forward with our lives with precautions. So, I want us to go back to doing projects again. We will take reasonable COVID precautions, but don't feel bad If you do not feel safe coming out to work due to the coronavirus. I understand.

We have had one project lined up since March, but an urgent need has come up. So we are going to do a project in Bartlett instead this month. An elderly man with health issues has been unable to cut the shrubs and vegetation in his yard. Bartlett Code enforcement received complaints in February 2020 so they have been talking to him. A church group was scheduled to help, but had to cancel when all the COVID concerns hit. Nothing has been done at this point, so code enforcement has told him he has until Tuesday to comply or he will receive a court summons to appear before a judge.

This project is very do-able if I can bring some of my equipment and GET SOME WORKERS. That is where you come in. If you are able, please come and help drag limbs. Bring a pair of gloves, good footwear (not sandals) and preferable long plants to protect legs.

We will meet at 1 pm this Sunday 9/13/2020 at 3273 Keeshond Cove, Bartlett, TN 38134. Thank you for your love of helping others!

February 2, 2020 - Cynthia Savageau

Our next project is this Sunday, February 2nd. The back of Ms. Savageau's home had large portions of missing siding that caused rotten wood. We replaced this at our last project, but now it needs painting. This project will not take long. If we have several folks come out it can be done in about one hour. You will be home in time for the Super Bowl with someone playing beside the New England Patriots. (LOL). I realize this is short notice, but finding a warm dry Sunday in the winter with no chance of rain cannot be planned ahead very far.
