Paint the Barn Red

The Red Barn Before ....

This Saturday, we're repainting the Red Barn at Shelton Lakes. The Barn is located on the corner of Nells Rock Road and Rt. 108. We keep a few odd items; such as rusty shovels, fence rails, and pipes in the Barn for easy access during work parties. We fixed up the Barn last year, but now that the Dog Park will be moving in next door we thought the place needed a little sprucing up.

Chuck the Power Washer from Hydro Works Inc. in Shelton volunteered to help clean off some of the peeling paint. Their firm specializes in power washing, printing and restoration. Chuck was awesome and his efforts saved us a lot of preparation time. It's always great when a local business helps out with Trails and Open Space projects. If you need something powerwashed please call Chuck at (203) 929-3121 and he'll help make your project a success.

After Chuck got done with it .....

And here's all Chuck's gear.

So on Saturday morning, if you have a little time, put on your painting clothes and bring your brush. We're going to spiff up The Barn. We may need a little help because this doesn't involve moving rocks or cutting briars. You too can join the Trails Committee in action at our Paint Party....
