F3 is mustering a force to support several Charlotte-area charities in the construction of five homes for five wounded warriors and their families (see www.555charity.org). The charities have a big need for able hands to do painting work on July 27, before the Marine Veteran and his family move in on August 15. If you or your kids (14 and up) are willing to help, please contact The Colonel BHWTU (saunders.stephenm@gmail.com) ASAP.

  • For those who have generously volunteered to help with the wounded warrior homesite in Denver, NC, this Saturday, July 27 – thank you! We’ll provide great service and have fun.

    If you need to pull out, please let me know ASAP so I can have a good count.

    Here are the basics:

    1. Participants meet at rally points at 8:45AM, following Saturday workouts. Metro rally point is Panera on Providence. Macbeth/Cheetah will follow up with NoCo guys re NoCo rally point. Groups will ideally carpool, since onsite parking is somewhat limited.

    2. Hours are 9am – 4pm. If folks need to leave early or come late, feel free to drive independently.

    3. 2.0s should be 14 yrs or older (the original post said 12 yrs, but I have since learned that 14 yrs is the posted minimum age; apologies for the change).

    4. We will be doing interior/exterior painting, most likely (will let you know in advance if I learn of a change). Dress accordingly and coolly. Good idea to bring a hat, latex gloves for painting, and work gloves for other duties that may arise. No need to bring any other work supplies.

    5. BYO lunch and hydration, or plan to break for lunch (several fast food spots at large shopping center 5 miles away at crossroads of NC-16 / NC-73).

    6. Address for GPS is 7400 Lake Haven Drive, Denver, NC. Directions from Charlotte: I-77N to Exit 11B for Brookshire Frwy W; 18 miles on Brookshire, exit right onto NC-73 toward Huntersville; half a mile on NC-73, turn left onto NC-16 Business at light; 5 miles on NC-16, turn right on Webbs Rd at light (CVS on corner); first right (almost immediate) on Water Haven Trail, gravel road, construction site directly ahead.

    Please email me with any questions – saunders.stephenm@gmail.com

    Look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
